The Government continues to have concerns about Israel's military court system for Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. We have advocated to the Israeli authorities the importance of fulfilling the internationally recognised standards for a fair trial. We are particularly concerned about continued reports of ill-treatment of Palestinian minors in Israeli military detention, which we regularly lobby the Israeli authorities on.
