We remain very concerned about the situation in Gaza. We regularly raise our concerns about Gaza with the Israeli authorities, urging them to work together with the Palestinian Authority and Egypt to see long-term improvements. We are clear that that Israel has the right to protect itself, as it is plain that Hamas and its operatives have exploited the recent protests for their own benefit. We also remain concerned about the impact of the humanitarian situation, and we continue to raise concerns about Israel's conduct of the occupation.
