unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has concerns about allegations of mistreatment of Palestinian detainees and about Israel’s respect for its relevant obligations as an Occupying Power under applicable international law. While we have not made an assessment of the humanitarian needs of Palestinian detainees, a focus of UK human rights engagement is Palestinian minors in Israeli military detention, as we have concerns about the treatment of minors during arrest and interrogation. We have raised these concerns with the Israeli authorities on many occasions, and will continue to do so.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Various recent international reports (by the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations) continue to conclude that Israeli constraints on movement, access and trade remain a key impediment to economic growth and well-being in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPTs), including restricting access to land, water, and medical services and supplies. The UK continues to press for a sustainable two-state political solution which addresses Israel’s legitimate security concerns whilst opening up movement and access for Palestinians.</p> more like this

This will strengthen our understanding of who, where and why people are at risk of being left behind.

The humanitarian effects include impact to children’s education, displacement, psychological distress and damage of livelihoods.

unstar this property answer text <p>It is clear that if restrictions on trade, movement and access between the West Bank and Gaza were eased via creation of a secure route between the two through Israel, humanitarian goods and personnel would be able to reach the intended beneficiaries in a more timely and cost-effective manner. Easing trade restrictions would help to ensure that humanitarian relief reaches those in need, helping to save lives and reduce suffering. More broadly, the benefits of increased trade flow would enhance Gaza’s economy, and relieve the humanitarian situation by lifting the overall standard of living. An analysis by the World Bank shows that lifting restrictions on Gaza could lead to additional cumulative growth of approximately 32% by 2025. We continue to press Israel to ease restrictions on trade, movement and access in line with their legitimate security concerns, and urge Hamas to renounce violence and move towards the quartet principles; the UK is committed to the unimpeded movement of humanitarian goods and personnel.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Humanitarian agencies currently have to devote considerable time, resource, and effort to coordinating the passage of humanitarian goods and personnel through crossings between Israel and Gaza. Kerem Shalom is the only crossing for goods to enter and exit Gaza via Israel. In 2017 an average of 218 trucks a month were leaving Gaza into Israel, compared to a monthly average of 961 trucks between January and July in 2007. This severely constrains the economic development of Gaza, which contributes to the dire humanitarian situation. By operating Kerem Shalom at capacity, humanitarian and essential goods would be able to reach the intended beneficiaries in a more timely and cost-effective manner. This would expedite the delivery of humanitarian relief to those in need, helping to save lives and reduce suffering. The UK regularly raises the need to ease trade, movement and access restrictions with the Government of Israel, in line with their legitimate security concerns, and urges Egypt reopen the Rafah crossing.</p>
