To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what steps her Department is taking to support reconstruction of homes and essential infrastructure in Gaza following the conflict of May 2021.
22 October 2021
We have made clear our concern about the ongoing humanitarian situation in Gaza, including significant damage and destruction of civilian infrastructure following the escalation in violence in May 2021. The UK continues to urge Israel to ensure humanitarian access into and out of Gaza, including for essential health services. The UK remains a longstanding supporter to the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) which provides core services, including health and education to Palestinian refugees in Gaza.
