U.K. Tells Israel: Do “As Little as Possible to Escalate” Tensions with Iran

HeadlineApr 17, 2024

Tension remains high in the Middle East as world leaders urge Israel to show restraint following Iran’s recent drone and missile attack. British Foreign Secretary David Cameron has urged Israel to do “as little as possible to escalate” tensions with Iran. Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of provoking Iran by bombing the Iranian Consulate in Damascus, Syria, two weeks ago.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan: “Netanyahu is endangering the lives of both his own citizens and all the peoples in the region to extend his political life. This is an indisputable fact: The one responsible for the tension that made our hearts skip a beat on the night of April 13 is Netanyahu and his government, which is seeing red.”
