1 Mins read


British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has arrived in Israel for a two-day trip aimed at demonstrating solidarity with the country and preventing further escalation following the Hamas attack on October 7.

Meeting with Israeli Leaders

Sunak is scheduled to hold talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Isaac Herzog. He will then proceed to visit other regional capitals.

Solidarity with Israel

Upon landing at Ben Gurion Airport, Sunak expressed his condolences and assured the people of Israel that they are not alone in their suffering. He stated, “The United Kingdom and I stand with you,” condemning the unspeakable act of terrorism.

Calls for Rafah Border Crossing Opening

The United Kingdom is advocating for the opening of the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt. The aim is to facilitate aid delivery to Gaza and allow foreign nationals to leave the conflict-stricken area. Notably, Israel recently agreed to permit limited humanitarian aid into Gaza following a visit by U.S. President Joe Biden. Egypt has also agreed to open the crossing to accommodate up to 20 trucks.

A Call for Unity from World Leaders

Before departing for the Middle East, Sunak emphasized that the recent explosion at the al-Ahli hospital in Gaza, which tragically claimed countless lives, should serve as a turning point for world leaders to unite and prevent further escalation of the conflict.
