The United Kingdom has followed the footsteps of the United States by imposing sanctions on four Israeli citizens in the West Bank, APA reports citing i24News.
The sanctions come in response to what the UK describes as "acts of aggression and violence against Palestinians in the West Bank."
The individuals targeted by the sanctions, which include asset freezes, travel restrictions, and visa bans, are Moshe Sharvit, Yanon Levy, Zvi Bar Yosef, and Eli Pederman.
This action from Britain comes after reports surfaced that the U.S. is considering sanctions against Israeli military members and politicians for their alleged failures in curbing settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank. Israeli media reported that the U.S. could impose sanctions on soldiers, officers, lawmakers, and ministers.
According to the Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation (Kan), the Israeli foreign affairs ministry received a memorandum indicating that Washington was preparing to take such measures. Israel has been urged to provide a satisfactory explanation for reports of human rights violations in the West Bank within 60 days.
