Britain’s Prime Minister Rishi Sunak expressed his sympathy and condemned the recent act of terrorism in Israel during his solidarity visit on Thursday. Sunak arrived in the country to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Isaac Herzog, where he assured them that the United Kingdom stands with them.

Sunak acknowledged the deep grief engulfing Israel, referring to it as “a nation in grief”. He also reiterated his commitment to the fight against terrorism, vowing to support Israel against this evil. His visit comes in the wake of similar visits by US President Joe Biden and Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz earlier this week, as western leaders show their support in the aftermath of the tragic incident.

Before departing, Sunak emphasized his focus on preventing a broader conflict in the region, particularly in light of the October 7 attacks carried out by Hamas, which resulted in the loss of approximately 1,400 lives in Israel. Additionally, he intends to advocate for increased humanitarian aid to be allowed into Gaza. The Hamas-controlled health ministry reports that around 3,500 people have lost their lives in Israeli air raids since the attacks.

As part of the UK’s response, Britain has augmented its Palestinian aid package. On the other hand, Israel has announced its willingness to permit the entry of food, water, and medicine into the beleaguered Gaza Strip via Egypt.

In a coordinated effort, British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly is also planning to make official visits to Egypt, Turkey, and Qatar in the coming days, as confirmed by the government.

Overall, the international community continues to extend support to Israel in the aftermath of the devastating terrorist attack, with Sunak’s visit serving as another testament to the solidarity among Western nations.
