The UK regularly raises the issue of settler violence with the Government of Israel, most recently with Israel's Ministry of Defence on 19 October. We condemn any incidence of violence in the settlements. The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa raised UK opposition to settlement expansion with the Government of Israel on 9 November.
