The UK has welcomed the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, joining other nations who want to see an end to the fighting.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted, “I welcome news of a ceasefire in Israel and Gaza. Leaders in the region must now work to find a durable solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that prevents terrorism, ends the cycle of violence and delivers a sustainable and just peace.”

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab also welcomed the announcement, adding: “The UK welcomes the announcement of a ceasefire in Israel and Gaza, an important step to ending the cycle of violence and loss of civilian life.”

“Hamas must end all attacks on Israel. It is also now important for Israel to facilitate rapid humanitarian access in and out of Gaza.”

Britain will be contributing to United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) funds which are being collected to provide food, water and emergency shelter for Palestinians affected by the violence, Minister for the Middle East James Cleverly announced on Thursday before the ceasefire.

Mr Cleverly said: “Today’s UK support will help UNRWA deliver life-saving humanitarian aid to those that need it most.”

“The escalation of violence and loss of life in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories has shocked all of us.”
