On 11 July our Ambassador in Tel Aviv met with Major General Amos Gilad, Political-Military Director at the Israeli Ministry of Defence, and raised the need to avoid civilian casualties, including from air strikes.

I refer the noble Baroness to the Statement on Gaza made by the then Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right Hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), which I repeated in the House of Lords on 14 July, Official Report Column 434.
