To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made, if any, of the judgment by Israel’s High Court on 4 May concerning the eviction of Palestinian residents of Masafer Yatta.
30 May 2022
The UK is clear that in all but the most exceptional of circumstances, demolitions and evictions are contrary to International Humanitarian Law. Our opposition to the demolition of Palestinian property and the evictions of Palestinians from their homes is long-standing. The practice causes unnecessary suffering to Palestinians and is harmful to efforts to promote peace. We repeatedly call on Israel to abide by its obligations under international law and have a regular dialogue with Israel on legal issues relating to the occupation.
