“The UK has imposed sanctions against four ‘extremist’ Israeli settlers it has accused of attacking Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. The Foreign Office announced financial and travel restrictions against the four who it says have committed human rights abuses against Palestinians. Lord Cameron also called on Israel to take action to end the violence. West Bank violence has surged since the start of the Gaza war, triggered by Hamas’s attack on Israel on 7 October. At least 384 Palestinians — members of armed groups, attackers and civilians — have been killed in conflict-related incidents in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, or in Israel, according to the UN. During the same period, 10 Israelis, including four security forces personnel, have been killed.” (02/12/24)
