Minister for the Middle East statement on settlement outposts across the West Bank

16 November 2016

FCO Minister Tobias Ellwood deeply concerned by the land regulation bill in the Israeli Knesset to ‘legalise’ settlement outposts across the West Bank.

Foreign Office minister, Tobias Ellwood, said:

We are deeply concerned by the land regulation bill in the Israeli Knesset to ‘legalise’ settlement outposts across the West Bank. Such outposts are currently illegal under both Israeli domestic law and international humanitarian law. Should this proposal go ahead, it would seriously undermine prospects for a two-state solution. I urge the Israeli government to reconsider the land regulation bill at the earliest opportunity.
