The UK is very concerned at the high numbers of Palestinians killed by Israel Defense Forces in the West Bank and Gaza. We have raised this issue with the Israeli authorities, encouraging them to carry out transparent investigations into whether the use of live fire had been appropriate. We call on Israel to adhere to the principles of necessity and proportionality when defending its legitimate security interest.
