star this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned by the report of attacks on health workers in Gaza. The UK is clear that no health workers or aid workers should be at risk of violence, and that they must have the protection they need from the responsible authorities to allow them to do their jobs in safety. While we recognise Israel’s right to security, we have repeatedly made clear to Israel our longstanding concerns about the way Israel Defence Forces (IDF) police protests and the border areas in Gaza, including our concerns about the use of live ammunition and excessive force by the IDF. We regularly raise with the Government of Israel the urgent need to ease all access and movement restrictions on Gaza, including for health workers.</p><p> </p><p>The UK continues to strongly support the delivery of humanitarian assistance in Gaza. In 2019, the UK is supporting urgent medical needs through the International Committee for the Red Cross and the World Health Organisation. We are also providing support to the UN Access Coordination Unit, which works to facilitate humanitarian access for UN and NGO workers into Gaza.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The primary responsibility for prosecuting those who attack humanitarian workers in any context lies with the state authorities. In a conflict context, where the state authorities are unable or unwilling to do this, international accountability mechanisms may be invoked, as appropriate. The UK supports international mechanisms such as the International Criminal Court or <em>ad hoc</em> tribunals acting within their mandates when grave violations of international humanitarian law are suspected, and the state is genuinely unable or unwilling to investigate or prosecute.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DFID recognises the essential role of Sudanese civil society in securing a transition to a stable political system that is inclusive, respects democratic norms and allows open and ongoing political dialogue. Until the end of 2018, the Local Partnerships for Dialogue Programme provided support to civil society, media, and women and youth groups, with the aim of strengthening their capacity to demand more inclusive, democratic and accountable governance.</p><p> </p><p>DFID has resources within its current framework to continue the UK’s support of Sudanese non-state actors, and their important participation in the transition. This could take the form of support to the handover to a civilian-led government, through technical assistance to negotiation and mediation efforts; and further capacity building for civil society organisations to build their resilience and capacity to champion inclusive dialogue.</p> more like this
