Denial & escalation: US sanctions follow Israeli settler violence in West Bank

The US State Department announced on Tuesday it is issuing travel bans on dozens of Israelis and some Palestinians for taking part in violence in the Occupied West Bank.
Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank deny daily harassment, dismissing US concerns.
Contrary to their claims, documented attacks have doubled since October 7, prompting travel bans for some settlers. While downplayed by settlers, the Biden administration’s move is seen as symbolic.
NGOs supporting settlements may face scrutiny.
Despite on-the-ground denials, escalating violence raises questions about further US intervention.
