Motion text

That this House notes that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child applies to all children whatever their race or religion and that children have a right to a life that is free from violence, abuse and neglect; acknowledges that settler violence in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, military incursions, checkpoints, demolitions, forced displacements, deepening poverty and the routine arrest and detention of minors or their family members are making Palestinian children increasingly vulnerable; further notes that they are denied their rights to freedom of movement and an adequate standard of living and health, their horizons are extremely limited especially in Gaza where a new generation is growing up without ever having been beyond the borders of the blockade; calls on the Government to insist that the Israeli government prioritise the well-being of Gaza's children by lifting the blockade to enable free movement in and out of Gaza, including to the West Bank and East Jerusalem; and further notes Israel's obligation under international law as the occupying power that it must ensure the rights of Palestinian children are upheld since urgent action is required to safeguard their health and well-being, now and for future generations.
