JERUSALEM, Monday, February 27, 2023 (WAFA) – The British Consulate General in Jerusalem released a statement in which it condemned the Israeli settlers’ massive violent attacks against Palestinians in the town of Huwara, south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, and the killing of a Palestinian man.

The statement, which was released on the Consulate General’s official Facebook page in both Arabic and English, urged the Israeli government to hold whoever was responsible for the killing of Sameh Aqtash to account.

“Horrified by scenes of settler violence in Huwara and nearby villages yesterday, with approximately 400 Palestinians injured and tens of homes, businesses and cars torched,” the statement said. “Settlers responsible for this violence must be brought to justice.”

“The UK condemns the killing of Sameh Aqtash during the same attacks by settlers and expresses condolences to his family. Sameh was a Palestinian aid worker who risked his life to save victims of the earthquakes in Turkey. We urge the Government of Israel to hold the perpetrators of this dreadful crime to account,” the statement said.
