British PM Rishi Sunak 'deeply concerned' about Rafah attack

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said his government is “deeply concerned” about an Israeli assault on Rafah “given the number of civilians sheltering there”.

Speaking to Sky News, Sunak said that his government has been consistent, opposing a Rafah attack.

“The priority now must be for all parties, especially Hamas, to agree to an agreement to release the hostages and allow more aid in as part of a temporary truce that allows us to build a sustainable ceasefire, as this is the best way to end the conflict,” he said.
