24 July 2015

While officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv have not raised this specific issue with the Israeli authorities, we are pressing Israel to demonstrate accountability for its actions during Operation Protective Edge. The Israeli Military Advocate General continues his investigations into specific incidents and complaints are filed on behalf of Palestinian residents in Gaza or by Israeli, Palestinian or international non-governmental organisations. The Israeli State Comptroller has also launched an investigation into military and political decision making processes during Operation Protective Edge. We will continue to follow these investigations closely.
