​The UK has not directly funded any structures in recent years that have been demolished by the Israeli Government. We are keeping the case for compensation under review. The UK is focused on preventing demolitions from happening through our funding to the Norwegian Refugee Council legal aid programme which helps residents challenge decisions in the Israeli legal system.
