We condemn any incidents of destruction of Palestinian property by settlers. We welcome the efforts of Israeli authorities to address settler attacks, and urge them to thoroughly investigate every instance to bring those responsible to justice and end the culture of impunity. We have also stressed the importance of Israeli security forces providing appropriate protection to the Palestinian civilian population. Officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv last raised the issue of settler violence with the Israeli authorities on 17 December 2019.
