In response to Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to the UK, Richard Stanforth, Oxfam senior policy advisor said:

“It is unconscionable that the Prime Minister will roll out the red carpet for Benjamin Netanyahu with the aim of deepening diplomatic ties; despite the Israeli government committing horrific human rights violations every day, seemingly with impunity.

“Millions of Palestinians are routinely denied access to their jobs, land and water and forced into poverty. Many families are being forced from their homes by the expansion of illegal settlements built on occupied land.

“It is time for the UK to support a global ban on all trade and investment in Israeli settlements and for the Israeli government to uphold, not ignore, international law.”
