Petition Take action to prevent expulsion of residents from Masafer Yatta
The UK Government must take decisive steps to seek to prevent the expulsion of Palestinian communities (totalling more than 1,000 individual residents) from their ancestral lands in Masafer Yatta, occupied Palestinian territories.
A large part of the area has been designated by the Israeli military as Firing Zone 918, an area for the military to train and practise, despite it being almost universally recognised as being occupied territory.
Considering the UK's historical role in the situation in Israel-Palestine today, the UK Government needs to take responsibility and seek to prevent the expulsion of residents from Masafer Yatta.
