tobias-ellwoodMinister for the Middle East, Tobias Ellwood MP, today criticised Palestinian terror groups for praising attacks and inciting violence, in response to a question from CFI Vice-Chairman Guto Bebb MP.

Mr Ellwood said that while most of the attacks in Israel and the West Bank appear to have been carried out by individuals rather than organisations, he acknowledged the claims of responsibility and incitement by Palestinian terror groups. He asserted: “we have seen media reports of Palestinian terrorist groups claiming responsibility for some recent attacks, praising attacks, and appearing to incite further violence”.

He added: “We condemn all the terrorist attacks, as I made clear in the House on 20 October, and in my statement on 13 October”.

The Minister’s comments were given in response to a question from CFI Vice-Chairman Guto Bebb, MP for Aberconwy, who asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: “what reports he has received on the involvement of Palestinian terror groups in the recent violence in Israel and the West Bank”.
