The British Consul General in Jerusalem, Philip Hall, said: "Today's announcement confirms the UK's commitment to stand by the Palestinian people at this difficult time."

He added: "This financial contribution would support the Palestinian Authority and the response plan of the United Nations to confront this crisis. It will also help these medical supplies to maintain the safety of doctors, nurses and other medical personnel while working to save lives."
