At International Development Questions on 13 February 2019, Caabu board member Rt Hon Alistair Carmichael MP raised the issue of accountability for killings in Gaza with International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt MP, and what the UK was doing to ensure the safety of heath workers in Gaza. He said: 

"There are few parts of the world that see more vulnerable people than Gaza. Medical Aid for Palestinians report that since March last year at least 250 Palestinians have been killed as part of Israel's use of force against the Great March of Return protests.Amongst these were three health workers, killed by Israeli forces whilst trying to reach, treat and evacuate wounded demonstrators. A further 600 health workers have been injured. What is our Government doing to ensure the safety of health workers in Gaza, and to hold the Israeli Government to acccount for these actions?"
