star this property answer text <p>The issue of children in military detention remains a human rights priority for the UK. British Embassy officials in Tel Aviv most recently raised the issue with the Israeli authorities on 16 January, and senior British Government officials raised this issue with the Israeli Ambassador to the UK on 8 January. The Minister for the Middle East raised our concerns with the Israeli Government during his visit to Israel in August 2017. We have recently raised this as part of the UN Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review into Israel.</p><p>We recognise that in some circumstances the Israelis have a legitimate need to deploy security measures to address instances of violence. We encourage that such measures are deployed in a way which minimises tension and using only appropriate force. When there have been accusations of excessive use of force, we advocate swift and transparent investigations.</p> more like this
