​Whilst we have not raised this specific issue with the Israeli authorities, we condemn any incidence of violence by settlers against Palestinians and urge the Israeli authorities to thoroughly investigate every instance and bring those responsible to justice. We have also stressed the importance of Israel security forces providing appropriate protection to the Palestinian civilian population.
