To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they intend to make to the government of Israel about reports that Israeli forces fired at a car containing Palestinian youths and wounded a 16 year old, because those forces believed that the car was being driven in a suspicious manner.

While we have not made any representations on this specific incident, we are aware of these reports. The UK has repeatedly made clear to Israel our longstanding concerns about the manner in which the Israel Defense Forces operate in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including the use of live ammunition, encouraging them to carry out transparent investigations into whether the use of live fire had been appropriate.
