The Government recognises the need for major international organisations to carry out humanitarian and reconstruction work on the ground in Gaza. Medical staff should co-ordinate their entry to and exit from Gaza with those organisations. Israeli restrictions severely restrict the movement of medical professionals and patients in Gaza, hampering the provision of quality health services, as well as the pursuit of studies, continuing education and specialized training for medical professionals. Our Embassy in Israel regularly raises the matter of medical permits with the Israeli authorities.</p><p>We regularly raise issues relating to medical facilities and personnel with the Israeli authorities. We have stressed the need for safe and unimpeded passage for medical personnel. In particular we raise our concerns about medical facilities in Gaza, and medical permits, with the office for the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT). Our Ambassador to Israel discussed Gaza with COGAT on 17 September. Officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv raised our concerns about the targeting of health workers with COGAT on 23 August.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>​The Government has repeatedly made clear to the Israeli authorities our serious concern at the increase in demolitions of Palestinian properties in Area C of the West Bank, and in East Jerusalem. In all but the most exceptional circumstances, demolitions are contrary to International Humanitarian Law. The practice causes unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians and is harmful to the peace process. We call on the Israeli authorities to cease the policy of demolitions and provide a transparent route to construction for Palestinians in Area C.</p> more like this

We have consistently raised this issue with the Government of National Accord, including during a recent visit by the International Development Secretary. The UK continues to provide humanitarian support to vulnerable refugees and migrants in Libya, including through over £5m of funding for UN agencies and non-governmental organisations. UK assistance to the Libyan Coastguard has been delivered through financial contributions and the provision of two military training teams to Operation Sophia’s (the EU Naval Operation set up in response to the Mediterranean Migration Crisis) Coastguard Training Task. This training aims to equip the Libyan Coastguard with the skills required to manage search and rescue and conduct counter smuggling/trafficking activities properly, whilst respecting human rights. The training also includes sessions on seamanship. These efforts are part of a comprehensive approach to migration that includes supporting assisted voluntary returns, tackling people smuggling and encouraging economic development in source countries.</p>
