Lisa Nandy comments on the targeting of media offices in Gaza by Israeli air strikes

Lisa Nandy MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, commenting on the targeting of media offices in Gaza by Israeli air strikes, said: 

 “The targeting of media offices in Gaza by Israeli air strikes is completely unacceptable. Press freedom is a fundamental right.  

“The devastating escalation of violence – including Hamas rocket attacks on Tel Aviv and air strikes on the Gaza City refugee camp – has cost more civilian lives and we condemn it in the strongest possible terms. 

“The U.K. must join our international partners in calling for an immediate ceasefire, an end to all rocket attacks and air strikes, and work with both Israeli and Palestinian leaders to prevent this dangerous situation deteriorating further.”
