While we have not raised this specific issue with the Palestinian Authority, our Consul-General raised the issue of incitement with President Abbas on 24 December. We continue to support the reinstatement of the Tripartite Committee on Incitement as the appropriate channel to deal with allegations of incitement from either side.
