UK announces sanctions on four 'extremist settlers' in West Bank

Published February 12,2024

Britain on Monday announced sanctions on four "extremist Israeli settlers" accused of committing human rights abuses against Palestinians in the West Bank, following a similar move by the United States earlier this month.

"Israel must also take stronger action and put a stop to settler violence," UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron said in a statement unveiling the curbs, which comprise UK asset freezes alongside travel and visa bans.
