Tel Aviv: Amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak landed in Tel Aviv on Thursday to meet the Israeli top leaders and express solidarity with the war-torn country.
According to his office, Sunak will meet with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel President Isaac Herzog and will share his condolences for the loss of life in Israel and Gaza as a result of the October 7 attack on Israel.
“Every civilian death is a tragedy. And too many lives have been lost following Hamas’ horrific act of terror,” Sunak said in a statement ahead of his visit, according to Reuters.
Earlier, in a post on social media platform X, Sunak condemned the attack on Gaza hospital that killed hundreds.”We are all shocked by the scenes at the al-Ahli Arab Hospital. Our intelligence services are rapidly analysing the evidence to independently establish the facts,” he posted.
Thousands of people have been killed on both sides as the war continues to turn brutal with every passing day.
The war, as it unfolds, comes up with international pressure mounting for an immediate ceasefire and a return to the negotiating table to resolve the long-standing Israel-Palestine conflict.
