Our Ambassador to Tel Aviv met senior officials from the Israeli National Security Council on 21 June and raised planning issues, including relating to the Bedouin in Area C of the West Bank. In May, our Embassy raised our serious concerns about the potential forcible transfer of the Bedouin in E1 and other parts of Area C and the Israeli Supreme Court’s ruling approving the demolition of the West Bank village Susiya with the Head of COGAT (Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories’), and senior officials from the Israeli National Security Council.
