Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly said in a statement that some settlers in the West Bank will be sanctioned and new sanctions will be imposed on Hamas leaders. Joly said, "We are actively working on this issue. While I am in Ukraine, I am making sure that work is being done in Ottawa and I look forward to making an announcement soon."
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said last Friday that Canada was considering sanctions against "extremist" settlers in the West Bank.

On January 2, the US State Department placed 4 Jewish settlers on the sanctions list after US President Joe Biden approved a decree authorizing the imposition of sanctions on Jewish settlers who commit violence against Palestinians in the West Bank.
