Israel: Golan Heights
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what action they intend to take following the demolition of a home in Majdal Shams in the occupied Syrian Golan by the Israeli authorities on 7 September.
Answered on: 26 September 2016

The Government is concerned that there has been a large increase in demolitions since the start of 2016, compared with the monthly average in 2015.

On 7 September, during a meeting with Israeli Defence Minister Lieberman in London, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth East (Mr Ellwood) raised our concerns about demolitions.
