We have no plans, at the moment, to raise this specific issue with the Israeli authorities. However, we repeatedly make clear to the Israeli authorities our serious concerns about continued demolitions of Palestinian property and the need to abide by their other obligations under international law. Officials from the British Embassy in Tel Aviv raised the broad issue of demolitions on 28 May with Prime Minister Netanyahu's office.
