star this property answer text <p>In its 22 July 2014 Council Conclusions, the EU made clear that it will only recognise changes to the pre-1967 borders, including with regard to Jerusalem, when agreed by the parties. Settlements, including in East Jerusalem, are illegal under international law and an obstacle to the two state solution. Discussions are continuing in Brussels on how the EU can best discourage further Israeli settlement expansion including in East Jerusalem. The EU has also called on both parties to resume serious peace negotiations, which must resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of both states.</p><p> </p> more like this

As the UK and EU made clear, the attacks on UN schools in Gaza, which resulted in the deaths of innocent children, were shocking. We are pressing Israel to demonstrate accountability for its actions during the conflict, both through internal processes, such as Israel Defence Forces' investigations of specific cases of engagement, and international procedures, such as this inquiry, which must be independent and balanced, and examine the actions of both Hamas and Israel.</p> more like this

The EU stands ready to support a comprehensive ceasefire agreement, and discussions are ongoing on options for this, including support in the area of movement and access. We are clear that whilst we recognise the need to address Israeli security concerns, there is a need to meet Palestinian requirements regarding the lifting of restrictions, including the blockade, on Gaza.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since the publication in June of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office-funded independent report on Children in Military Custody, there has been some limited progress. This includes a pilot project to use summons instead of night-time arrests, and steps to reduce the amount of time a child can be detained before seeing a judge. We have welcomed the steps taken to date, but we have called for further measures, including the mandatory use of audio-visual recording of interrogations, investigation into continued reports of single hand ties being used, and an end to solitary confinement for children.</p> more like this

star this property answer text Our Embassy in Tel Aviv registered its concerns with the Israeli Ministry of Defence over the matter on 29 October. Israeli media had reported that Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon had issued a directive that banned Palestinian workers from travelling on Israeli-run public transportation in the West Bank into green-line Israel. The Israeli Ministry of Defence have denied the media reports and clarified that Palestinians will be required to enter and exit Israel through the Eyal border crossing, so that Israel can supervise entries and exits, reducing the risk of a terrorist attack. The Transportation Ministry has said publicly that, by law, Palestinians cannot be prevented from riding buses. The Israeli Attorney General office requested clarification of the directive from the Ministry of Defence by November 9. Posts are monitoring the situation closely. more like this
