star this property answer text <p>The Foreign and Commonwealth Office continues to advise against all travel to Gaza (including the waters off Gaza) and we are not able to support individuals applying for entry or exit permits for Gaza. The Government recognises the need for major international organisations to carry out humanitarian and reconstruction work on the ground in Gaza. Medical staff should co-ordinate their entry to and exit from Gaza with those organisations. Israeli restrictions severely restrict the movement of medical professionals and patients in Gaza, hampering the provision of quality health services, as well as the pursuit of studies, continuing education and specialized training for medical professionals. Our Embassy in Israel regularly raises the matter of medical permits with the Israeli authorities.</p><p>We regularly raise issues relating to medical facilities and personnel with the Israeli authorities. We have stressed the need for safe and unimpeded passage for medical personnel. In particular we raise our concerns about medical facilities in Gaza, and medical permits, with the office for the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT). Our Ambassador to Israel discussed Gaza with COGAT on 17 September. Officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv raised our concerns about the targeting of health workers with COGAT on 23 August.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>​The Government has repeatedly made clear to the Israeli authorities our serious concern at the increase in demolitions of Palestinian properties in Area C of the West Bank, and in East Jerusalem. In all but the most exceptional circumstances, demolitions are contrary to International Humanitarian Law. The practice causes unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians and is harmful to the peace process. We call on the Israeli authorities to cease the policy of demolitions and provide a transparent route to construction for Palestinians in Area C.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Government recognises the contribution non-governmental organisations (NGOs) make towards search and rescue in the Mediterranean. We do not provide direct support to these organisations. The UK has a strong record on Mediterranean Search and Rescue: between May 2015 and July 2018, UK naval assets rescued over 31,000 people through our contributions to EU operations SOPHIA and Frontex. The British Government's understanding is that the M.V. Aquarius, following the withdrawal of its flagged status by the Gibraltar Maritime Authority on safety grounds, was subsequently registered under the Panama flag. However, the Panamanian Maritime Authority revoked its registration in September. It is not for the British Government to intervene in Panama's decision. The UK has not received a request from the owners of the Aquarius or its most recent operators, the NGOs SOS Méditerranée and Médicins Sans Frontières, for re-registration under a British flag. Should we receive such a request, the application would be considered according to the usual procedures.</p>
