star this property answer text While the Foreign Secretary has not recently discussed this specific issue with his Israeli counterpart, our Embassy in Tel Aviv and our Consulate-General in Jerusalem frequently urge both the Israeli and Palestinian authorities to take steps to improve conditions in Gaza. Every Israeli and Palestinian has the right to live in peace and security. We strongly condemn the recent attempted assassination of Prime Minister Hamdallah on 13 March, for which there is no justification. The UK continues to support the return of the legitimate Palestinian Authority to Gaza. We urge non-violence, dialogue and progress towards a sustainable Hamas-Fatah reconciliation and an improvement in the humanitarian situation in Gaza. more like this

Any such allegations should be thoroughly investigated by the appropriate bodies. The Turkish Government has assured the Foreign and Commonwealth Office that it is working to minimise civilian casualties. Turkish forces are trained in the Law of Armed Conflict and International Humanitarian Law, and we have discussed with Turkey the importance of pressing all actors in the Syrian conflict to comply fully with international conventions and norms. Alistair Burt, Minister for the Middle East reinforced these messages during his visit to Turkey on 21-23 March.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We consider that the level of control that Israel retains over Gaza amounts to occupation under international law and hence that Israel’s conduct is governed by the provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, to which Israel is a state party. In line with these provisions the UK continues to call on the Government of Israel to ease movement and access restrictions into and out of Gaza. British officials encouraged an easing of restrictions and improvement in the humanitarian situation in Gaza at the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee on 20 March.</p> more like this
