star this property answer text <p>​We have not made an assessment of the efficacy of the United Nations' conclusion that the 46 Palestinian communities in the central West Bank subject to a relocation plan by Israeli authorities are at high risk of forcible transfer. However, the UK is gravely concerned by Israeli proposals to relocate the Bedouin population from the E1 area. These plans could have a devastating impact on the communities concerned and will likely open the way for further settlement expansion – endangering the viability of the two-state solution. We have been clear about our grave concerns with the Israeli authorities and our Embassy in Tel Aviv most recently raised our concerns in a joint demarche with European Partners on 2 November 2017.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We are currently considering our recommendations ahead of the Universal Periodic Review of Israel at the United Nations Human Rights Council, in January 2018. We are gravely concerned by the continued demolition of Palestinian property by the Israeli authorities. We have 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, and we call on the Government of Israel to cease the policy of demolitions and provide a transparent route to construction for Palestinians in Area C.</p> more like this

We have spoken at every session and on every country since the process began, and are committed to its improvement. During the second cycle we worked with other States to limit the number of recommendations made to States under review, and ensure that they were of good quality. We are currently considering our recommendations ahead of the Universal Periodic Review of Israel at the United Nations Human Rights Council, in January 2018.</p> more like this

We funded and facilitated the independent report on Children in Military Custody by leading British lawyers. Ministers and our Ambassador to Israel have strongly urged Israel to implement the recommendations it made. I again raised our concerns over the issue of children in detention with the Israeli authorities during my recent visit between 22-23 August.</p> more like this
