To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations he is making to the Government of Israel on their use of ordnance in Gaza.
21 May 2018
The Foreign Secretary discussed the use of live ammunition against protestors in Gaza with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on 16 May. I have also raised concerns regarding this issue with my Israeli counterpart on 13 May and with the Israeli ambassador to the UK on 17 May. As I said in my statement of 14 May, we continue to implore Israel to show greater restraint in its use of live fire.
