The UK provides assistance to communities in Area C through technical assistance and funding for the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) to provide free legal support to Palestinian communities threatened with forced eviction, demolition and displacement. We work closely with donor partners both through the EU and humanitarian agencies to prevent the forcible transfer of any Palestinian communities from Area C of the West Bank and to uphold International Humanitarian Law.
