The UK remains deeply concerned by the humanitarian situation in Gaza. Over 100,000 people were made homeless by the conflict last summer, more than 10,000 of whom are still sheltering in UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) operated Collective Centres.

The UK provided £17million of emergency assistance to support those affected by the conflict last summer and is providing a further £20million of early recovery assistance.
