Lisa Nandy responds to Israeli air strikes in Gaza

Lisa Nandy MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, responding to Israeli air strikes in Gaza and Hamas rocket attacks on Israel, said:

“Reports that Israeli air strikes on Gaza have killed multiple civilians, including children, are shocking. This is appalling.

“Along with the rocket attacks launched by Hamas, we condemn all actions that endanger civilians in the strongest possible terms.

“Tonight, leaders on both sides must urgently seek a de-escalation of tensions.

“Israeli authorities must commit to ending the eviction of Palestinians from their homes and adhere to international law and Jerusalem’s sacred sites must be respected.”
