We are aware of concerns about the isolation of Palestinian villages and towns. Our officials in Tel Aviv regularly hold discussions with the Israeli Government about a range of issues relating to various locations in the West Bank and Gaza.

We continue to call on all parties to respect their responsibilities under International Law and International Humanitarian Law and for Israel to respect its obligations as the Occupying Power.
