We consistently call for an immediate end to all actions that undermine the viability of the two-state solution, including the UK’s statement at the UN Security Council on 29 April, and we continue to raise with our Israeli counterparts our concerns about the destruction of Palestinian agricultural land that has been caused by settlement-related activity.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We oppose any steps taken by the Israeli Government towards the expansion of settlements. Such settlements are illegal under international law and undermine the physical viability of the two-state solution. We reiterated this in the UK’s statement at the UN Security Council on 29 April. We continue to urge the Government of Israel to develop improved mechanisms for zoning, planning and permitting in Area C for the benefit of the Palestinian population, including by facilitating local Palestinian participation in such processes.</p><p>​</p> more like this

answer text <p>We have repeatedly made representations to the Government of Israel to end the demolition of Palestinian properties. Demolitions and evictions of Palestinians from their homes cause unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians, call into question Israel's commitment to a viable two-state solution, and, in all but the most exceptional of cases, are contrary to International Humanitarian Law.</p> more like this
