star this property answer text <p>On 6 February the British Consulate in Jerusalem joined EU heads of missions in issuing a statement expressing strong concerns about the demolition by the Israeli authorities of parts of the school of the Bedouin community of Abu Nuwar. Our Ambassador to Tel Aviv most recently discussed the issue of demolitions of Palestinian property with the Israeli authorities on 22 February. The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa also raised the issue of demolitions with the Ambassador on 27 February. Demolitions and evictions of Palestinians from their homes cause unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians; call into question Israel’s commitment to a viable two-state solution; and, in all but the most exceptional cases, are contrary to International Humanitarian Law.</p> more like this
