As the fighting continues in Gaza and Israel

The Foreign Secretary has once again called for a de-escalation of tensions between Israelis and Palestinians following the seventh consecutive day of hostilities in the region.

  • Britain has condemned Hamas’ attacks on civilians and affirmed Israel’s right to self-defence – which must be exercised with proportionality. We oppose settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and the evictions in Jerusalem.
  • All sides must avoid civilian casualties. Above all, we need to see de-escalation, an end to violence and a political pathway to peace.
