UK announces sanctions on four ‘extremist settlers’ in West Bank

LONDON: Britain on Monday announced sanctions on four “extremist Israeli settlers” accused of committing human rights abuses against Palestinians in the West Bank, following a similar move by the United States earlier this month.
The curbs follow what the UK called “unprecedented levels of violence by extremist settlers in the West Bank” over the past year by some residents of illegal Israeli settlements and outposts there.
The sanctions represent a rare move by London and Washington against Israelis, as war rages with Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
