This includes recent delays enforced by Houthi authorities on aid trucks at the border between Government of Yemen and Houthi controlled areas.</p><p> </p><p>We regularly raise obstructions to humanitarian access with all parties, including at the highest levels.

star this property answer text <p>Restrictions on movement and access imposed by the Israeli authorities on Gaza have resulted in a worsening of the already poor humanitarian situation. In May, 2,206 permit applications were made to the Government of Israel to enter Israel at the Erez crossing for healthcare, with 61% approved, 8% denied and 31% delayed. In the same month, 2,426 patient companion applications were made with 47% approved, 13% denied and 40% pending. The UK regularly raises and will continue to call on the Israeli government to ease access restrictions further and for Israel and the Palestinian Authority to work together to ensure a durable solution for Gaza. In addition to our diplomatic efforts, we have recently announced a new £1.6 million package of support to be delivered through the World Health Organisation which will help to provide life-saving treatment to more than 380,000 people in Gaza, including a new limb unit.</p> more like this
