US President Joe Biden has put more pressure on Israel regarding settler violence than any of his predecessors, US Deputy National Security Adviser Jon Finer tells the Aspen Security Forum.

Finer uses the recently announced visa ban on dozens of settlers and Palestinians behind violent attacks in the West Bank.

Finer says that in addition to freedom of movement restrictions by Israel, settler violence is one of the many “impediment[s] to basic, functioning human life” for Palestinians in the West Bank.
