star this property answer text <p>We are aware of the difficulties some foreign passport holding academic staff have faced in their attempts to teach at Palestinian universities, in particular the visa denials and delays they have faced. The Government is concerned about the possible increasing trend of the Israeli immigration service limiting access, and denying entry or residency to the West Bank, especially for academics. This is impacting on the ability of academics to teach in the OPTs, affecting the quality of Palestinian higher education provision, and further disadvantaging Palestinians. We continue to raise our concerns about Israeli restrictions on freedom of movement and access into and out of the OPTs, including for foreign nationals, with the Israeli authorities.</p> more like this

The nature of these demolitions which took place within an area of the West Bank controlled by the Palestinian Authority is particularly concerning and we continue to monitor the situation closely. We regularly make clear our serious concerns about the situation in East Jerusalem to the Israeli authorities, both bilaterally and in co-operation with EU partners. We are strongly opposed to any attempts to change the facts on the ground in the East Jerusalem. The UK continues to regard Israeli settlements as illegal under international law and an obstacle to peace, and we regularly raise our concerns about settlement activity with the Israeli authorities.</p> more like this
