Liz signs letter to PM demanding robust action against any Israeli annexation of occupied Palestinian Territory

Last week the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he intends to annex the Jordan Valley, as well as Israeli settlements that have themselves been built in breach of the Fourth Geneva convention, if he is returned to office as a result of the current general election.

The UN has said that these plans would see a third of the occupied West Bank annexed and destroy any chance of future peace talks. That’s why I’ve signed a letter to Boris Johnson, along with over 100 MPs demanding the UK government acts robustly to any Israeli annexation of Occupied Palestinian Territory.
