No country would stand by as rockets are fired or terrorist tunnels are constructed into their territory. We are equally clear that Israel’s response must be proportionate, taking all necessary steps to minimise civilian casualties in line with International Humanitarian Law.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>A UNSC resolution or the consent of a government are not the only potential bases in international law for the use of force. Other legal bases would include: individual or collective self-defence; and, in certain exceptional circumstances, in order to avert an overwhelming humanitarian catastrophe. ISIL continue to pose a direct threat to Iraq. They operate across the borders of Syria and Iraq, in a situation where the Government of Syria is unable or unwilling to take effective action to counter the threat posed by ISIL. Iraq has requested help to defend itself. The US have been clear that in carrying out military actions in Syria they are acting on the basis of both collective and individual self-defence. If the UK were to undertake military strikes in Syria we would only do so on a sound legal basis and that would depend on the facts on the ground at the time, for example in line with the US led international efforts in collective self defence pursuant to the Iraqi request of 20 September. The Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), has been clear that if the decision were made to take military action in Syria the government would return to the House of Commons. However, if there were a critical British interest at stake or there were the need to take urgent action to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe then it would be possible to order that and come straight to the House and explain afterwards.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A very wide range of views was expressed by participants at the Conference, as reflected in the factual summary of the conference issued under the Chair’s authority. Some argued that the way to achieve the goal of a world without nuclear weapons was to ban weapons now, or to fix a timetable for their elimination. This approach fails to take account of the stability and security which nuclear weapons can help to secure. None of us would gain from a loss of that stability. The United Kingdom believes that the UN Disarmament Machinery and the Non-Proliferation Treaty provide the right forum for working towards a world without nuclear weapons. The UK Ambassador restated our concern at the humanitarian consequences which could result from the use of nuclear weapons. That is why the UK works extremely hard to prevent the use of nuclear weapons, to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and to keep our own nuclear weapons safe and secure. We are also committed to working towards a world without nuclear weapons. We shall, however, retain a credible, continuous and submarine-based deterrent for as long as the global security situation makes it necessary. The UK intervention at the conference has already been published on the gov.uk website. I have also arranged for a copy to be placed in the Library of the House.</p>

Friend the Member for Runnymead and Weybridge (Mr Hammond) made clear in his statement of 3 October, the UK deplores Israel’s decision to advance plans for settlement units in Givat Hamatos. Along with a number of EU counterparts, and the European External Action Service, he urged the Israeli authorities to reverse this decision. Discussions are continuing in Brussels on how the EU can best discourage settlement expansion including in Givat Hamatos, E1 and Har Homa, and plans to relocate Bedouin from E1. The UK is working closely with other Member States to that end.</p> more like this

We continue to monitor events in Gaza and Israel carefully and call on all sides to ensure that their actions are in line with international humanitarian law.
