While we recognise Israel's legitimate need to deploy security measures, we encourage them to deploy these in a way that minimises tension. We call on Israel to abide by its obligations under international law and we have a regular dialogue with Israel on legal issues relating to the occupation. We stress the importance of the Israeli security forces providing appropriate protection to the Palestinian civilian population.
