Chris Elmore MP has today called for the UK Government to lead an international response following yesterday’s clashes in Gaza which have left 58 dead.
Mr Elmore labelled the killing of Palestinians by the Israeli Defence Force as ‘atrocious’, and accused Theresa May of a ‘burying her head in the sand’.
Last year, Mr Elmore travelled to the West Bank and Jerusalem in a visit designed to better understand the realities of living in the occupied territories.
During the visit Mr Elmore travelled alongside Medical Aid for Palestinians, who provide support to communities across Gaza and the West Bank
Chris Elmore MP today said:
“Following days of senseless violence, I have been left horrified by the atrocious killing of Palestinians by the Israeli Defence Force.”
“The radio silence by Theresa May has been deafening – she’s burying her head in the sand.”
“The UK has a responsibility to stand up and be heard in these situations, and I would urge the Prime Minister to lead an international response to put an end to the violence.”
