The UK is closely monitoring the situation in Gaza. We remain deeply concerned about restrictions on movement and access in Gaza, and the impact that these have on the humanitarian situation. We have frequent discussions with the Government of Israel about the need to ease restrictions on Gaza.</p> more like this
