Following the death of Palestinian Minister Ziad Abu Ein, the Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:

I’m shocked by the death of Palestinian Minister Ziad Abu Ein, following clashes between the IDF and Palestinians at a protest and tree planting ceremony for Human Rights Day in the West Bank. We expect a swift and transparent investigation.

My thoughts are with his family and friends, the Palestinian leadership and people at this difficult time.

Every Palestinian and Israeli has a right to live in peace and security. We urge leaders on all sides to redouble efforts to reduce tensions and promote calm.
