UIN 140561, tabled on 2 May 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 19 April 2018 to Question 135976, by what criteria he has assessed that Israel's investigation into the killings of protesters in Gaza will be independent and transparent.

9 May 2018

There is an urgent need to entrust the facts of what happened during the recent protests in Gaza. The UK is supportive of an investigation which establishes the facts about the recent violence in Gaza. Given the importance of accountability, we urge that any investigation is independent and transparent, its findings are made public, and if wrongdoing is found, that those responsible be held to account.
