A draft manifesto for the Labour Party has been leaked according to political website, Guido Fawkes, which includes wording about Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

The wording says the following:

“Labour is committed to a comprehensive peace in the Middle East based on a two-state solution, that means a secure Israel alongside a secure and viable state of Palestine. The expansion of Israeli settlements on the Palestinian West Bank is not only wrong and illegal, but represents a threat to the very viability of the hopes of securing a successful outcome of the peace process. We cannot accept the continued humanitarian crisis in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and we will support Palestinian recognition at the UN.”

Please note this is a draft manifesto. The final manifesto for Labour will be published in the next few days and we will look to see what that will include.
