Officials in our Embassy in Tel Aviv regularly raise access issues with Israeli Ministers, senior officials and the Israeli Defence Forces, including the issues of medical supplies to Gaza and physical access relating to Jerusalem, but they have not made representations on these specific cases. We will continue to monitor the situation regarding access issues.
