Violence in Gaza and the West Bank

Thank you for contacting me about the shocking violence in Gaza and the West Bank.

There was an Urgent Question in the House of Commons about this last week, when the Foreign Office Minister outlined the Government’s response to the violence and the steps we are taking to bring about an independent and transparent investigation into what happened.

The Foreign Office Minister’s full statement is available here: https://hansard.parliament.uk/commons/2018-05-15/debates/D6170F50-D03A-40D8-B257-5C2A55493561/GazaBorderViolence

I hope there will now be renewed urgency to bring about a peaceful two-state solution and a resolution of these tragic difficulties. That can be the only solution.
