We condemn any incidence of violence by settlers against Palestinians. We have repeatedly raised the issue of incidents of settler violence with the Israeli authorities. We continue to stress the importance of bringing those responsible to justice and of the Israeli security forces providing appropriate protection to the Palestinian civilian population and ensuring their livelihoods are not negatively impacted. We continue to raise this issue with the relevant Israeli authorities.
