Foreign Office condemns West Bank violence

The Foreign Office condemns appalling attack in the West Bank and expresses concern at death at Aida refugee camp.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


Speaking today, a Foreign Office spokesperson said:

We unreservedly condemn the appalling attack in the West Bank yesterday that left a man dead and a women and child in hospital. As Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas have both repeatedly made clear, violence can never be the route to peace.

We’re also deeply concerned about the death of a Palestinian woman after unrest in Aida refugee camp on Monday and hope that a full investigation into the circumstances is conducted quickly.
