answer
unstar this property answer text <p>We remain concerned about the situation in Gaza and continue to monitor it closely. The UK’s Ambassador in Tel Aviv and our Consul-General in Jerusalem have raised our concerns with the Israeli authorities and the Palestinian Authority (PA) respectively. We have encouraged the PA to ensure their policy in Gaza does not unnecessarily impact the civilian population. We urge all the parties to find a sustainable solution. The UK is a long-term supporter of United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) which provides basic services to 1.3 million people in Gaza including basic health care, and we are supporting humanitarian access, enabling reconstruction efforts and investing in job creation.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Urgent improvements to infrastructure in Gaza are essential to improve living conditions. DFID has provided technical assistance for feasibility studies for the Gaza desalinisation plant which will improve water security, and has supported the development of Gazan irrigation systems through the rehabilitation of water infrastructure. The UK is a shareholder in a number of major international financial institutions, such as the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Investment Bank, which support infrastructure projects across the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPTs). The UK regularly raises the issue of water in the OPTs with the Israeli authorities to ensure fair distribution of water across the OPTs.</p> more like this

A number of structures funded by the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) have been demolished in recent years.
