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 enables us, collectively, to take further action to have maximum development impact and reach those most at risk of being left behind. The UK Government analyses information from various sources when assessing progress on SDG 5, including the United Nations annual Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) report. We also invest in and share research that improves our understanding of the challenges in meeting SDG 5 and what works in responding to these challenges. We work with partners, for example through the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s DAC Network on Gender Equality, to share analysis and identify common strategies for making progress towards achieving SDG 5.</p> more like this

DFID is supporting our UN partners to assess global progress on the SDGs accurately, by strengthening our data on vulnerable and marginalised groups. Our Data Disaggregation Action Plan, launched in early 2017, outlines our approach to ensuring we leave no one behind in our policy and programmes. This will strengthen our understanding of who, where and why people are at risk of being left behind. It will enable us to empower vulnerable and marginalised groups, and help to ensure they are included in assessments of progress and need, and in development policy and programming.</p> more like this

The Foreign Secretary and I both discussed the UK’s unequivocal support for the two-state solution when we met Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki in London on 8 January. In line with our long-standing position on Jerusalem, the UK voted in favour of a resolution on Jerusalem at the UN Security Council on 18 December, and the resolution at the UN General Assembly on 21 December.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Demolitions of Palestinian homes and buildings, and evictions of the residents, cause unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians, are harmful to the peace process and, in most circumstances, are contrary to international humanitarian law. According to the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian affairs, 97 structures were demolished or seized in the West Bank in the first quarter of 2018 (January-March), including homes and livelihood structures. The humanitarian effects include impact to children’s education, displacement, psychological distress and damage of livelihoods. The UK continues to make clear to the Israeli authorities our serious concerns over the demolitions and evictions of Palestinians from their homes.</p> more like this
