UK-Israel trade deal response frontispiece

The UK’s current trading relationship with Israel raises serious questions for the UK government across a range of important foreign policy issues including its duties under international law. Israel’s serial violations of international law include Israel’s illegal settlement enterprise in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), demolitions of Palestinian homes, ongoing blockade of the Gaza Strip, and its unlawful use of military force on unarmed civilians. The UK Foreign Office has repeatedly raised concern over these violations, and yet the UK government is continuing to pursue a preferential trade deal with Israel.
