Initial detention periods have also been shortened. However we continue to have strong concerns about continued reports of ill-treatment of Palestinian minors in Israeli military detention and remain committed to working with Israel to secure improvements to its practices.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The treatment of Palestinian children in Israeli military detention remains an important concern for the UK. While welcoming the positive steps that Israel has taken since the last review in 2012, we continue to call upon Israel to improve its practices in line with international law and obligations. Officials at our Embassy in Tel Aviv raised our concerns about children in detention with the Israeli authorities on 18 March 2019 and reiterated the UK’s offer of expert discussions on the issue. We also raised the issue in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Annual Human Rights Report, and on the international stage, including at the UN Human Rights Council Universal Periodic Review of Israel in January 2018.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As our Consulate General in Jerusalem made clear in a tweet on 28 March we were saddened to learn of the death of a Palestinian medic during an Israeli Defense Forces operation in Bethlehem. It is vital that those delivering medical services are protected. We have not raised this specific issue with the Israeli authorities. While we recognise Israel's legitimate need to deploy security measures, we encourage them to deploy these in a way which minimises tension and to use appropriate force. In instances where there have been accusations of excessive use of force, we have advocated swift, transparent investigations.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We continue to have strong concerns about reports of ill-treatment of Palestinian minors in Israeli military detention. We remain committed to working with Israel to secure improvements to the practices surrounding the treatment of Palestinians in Israeli detention, with a particular focus on minors. British ministers and officials continue to make repeated representations to the Israeli Government about detention practices. We advocate for the mandatory use of audio-visual recording of interrogations, a reduction in the use of single hand ties, alternatives to night arrests and for the Israeli authorities to inform more consistently detained children of their legal rights. We also continue to fund projects providing legal aid to minors and capacity building to local lawyers.</p> more like this
