star this property answer text <p>​We are gravely concerned by the humanitarian impact of proposals to demolish the village of Susiya in the South Hebron Hills. The demolition could leave up to 100 people, half of them children, without shelter. Demolitions and evictions of Palestinians from their homes cause unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians; call into question Israel’s commitment to a viable two-state solution; and, in all but the most exceptional of cases, are contrary to International Humanitarian Law. Officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv have repeatedly raised our concerns with Israeli Ministers and senior officials, and urged them to cease this counter-productive policy, and provide a clear, transparent route to construction for Palestinians in Area C.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Every Israeli and Palestinian has the right to live in peace and security. We understand and share the deep frustration on all sides at the lack of progress on the Middle East Peace Process. The ongoing violence in Israel and the West Bank underlines that a just and lasting resolution that ends the occupation and delivers peace for both Israelis and Palestinians is long overdue.</p> more like this

star this property answer text The UK position on demolitions is clear: demolitions cause unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians; are harmful to the peace process; and are, in all but the most exceptional of cases, contrary to international humanitarian law. Officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv have raised our opposition to demolitions with the Israeli authorities repeatedly, most recently on 12 July, and urged them to provide a legal route for Palestinian construction. I also made our position clear at Oral Questions in the House on 12 July. more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We have not made an assessment of the efficacy of the United Nations' conclusion that the 46 Palestinian communities in the central West Bank subject to a relocation plan by Israeli authorities are at high risk of forcible transfer. However, the UK is gravely concerned by Israeli proposals to relocate the Bedouin population from the E1 area. These plans could have a devastating impact on the communities concerned and will likely open the way for further settlement expansion – endangering the viability of the two-state solution. We have been clear about our grave concerns with the Israeli authorities and our Embassy in Tel Aviv most recently raised our concerns in a joint demarche with European Partners on 2 November 2017.</p> more like this
