To ask Her Majesty’s Government what representations they have made to the government of Israel following reported the deaths of Bedouin women in an accident with Israeli police tractors.

Answered on

23 February 2015

As the deaths were a result of a road accident, we have not raised this incident with the Israeli authorities. An official from our Embassy in Tel Aviv was in the Negev on the day of the accident, and met several leading Bedouin non-governmental organisations. The issue was discussed with Bedouin community contacts.
