We raised this issue with the Israeli Office for the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories on 18 February. We remain deeply concerned about restrictions on movement and access in Gaza, and the impact that this is having on the humanitarian situation. We have frequent discussions with the Governments of Israel and Egypt about the need to ease restrictions on Gaza. We call on the Israeli Government to ease restrictions further and for Israel and the Palestinian Authority to work together to ensure a durable solution for Gaza.
