British PM Rishi Sunak Visits Israel, Voices Support for Siege and Bombardment of Gaza

HeadlineOct 19, 2023

Earlier today, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak arrived in Tel Aviv, where he was greeted by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Sunak said he believed Israel’s military was “taking every precaution to avoid harming civilians.” He made no mention of Israel’s decision to cut off food, water, fuel and medicine to Gaza — a siege that’s widely considered a breach of international law. On Wednesday, President Joe Biden said Egypt and Israel had agreed to allow 20 humanitarian aid trucks through the Rafah border crossing into Gaza. The trucks aren’t expected to arrive until Friday. A spokesperson for the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said, “We’re talking about two million people who are in need of everything, so 20 trucks will be a drop in the ocean.”
