Britain’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on Monday condemned the rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel and said: “The ongoing violence in Jerusalem and Gaza must stop.”

Israel has been under attack from Palestinian terrorist groups both in the form of Palestinian riots in Jerusalem and further afield, along with hundreds of rockets being fired by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) from Gaza into Israel.

Two Israeli women have been killed in these terror attacks, with dozens more injured. Israel has responded with airstrikes on terror targets in Gaza. At the time of writing, 26 Palestinians have been killed, most of whom were terrorists. PIJ, for example, confirmed that two senior commanders were killed in the strikes. Sadly, some of those killed in Gaza were children.

We must stress, however, that Israel is doing all it can to reduce civilian casualties on both sides while Hamas is doing all it can to increase civilian casualties on both sides. Hamas and anti-Israel propaganda thrive on tragedy, with biased press twisting the news to make the terrorists look like victims and Israel look like that bad guys.

Thankfully, the UK government’s response to this crisis is to rightly highlight the terrorism of Hamas rockets being fired at Israeli civilian populations.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said in a tweet on Monday: “The UK condemns the firing of rockets at Jerusalem and locations within Israel. The ongoing violence in Jerusalem and Gaza must stop. We need an immediate de-escalation on all sides, and end to targeting of civilian populations.”
