Labour responds to events in Israel and Gaza overnight

Wayne David MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Middle East, responding to events in Israel and Gaza overnight, said:

“It is vital that the ceasefire between Israel-Gaza holds. There can be no military solution to this conflict.

“The priority now must be to establish a meaningful peace process that furthers the prospect of a sovereign Palestinian state alongside a safe, secure Israel.”
