While officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv have not had any discussions with the Israeli authorities over these specific orders, we are pressing Israel to demonstrate accountability for its actions during Operation Protective Edge (OPE). Officials held discussions with the Israeli Military Advocate General’s office on 13 July and with the Israeli State Comptroller’s office on 15 July where OPE was raised.
