“Specific pauses” are required in Israel’s war with Hamas, according to UK Prime Minister David Cameron

Rishi Sunak said on Wednesday that “specific pauses” in Israel’s fight with Hamas are needed to let supplies into Gaza, but he stopped short of asking for a truce.
Sunak emphasised that Israel “has the right to defend itself under international law” in response to requests from certain opposition MPs during weekly questions in parliament to call for a ceasefire.

However, the UK leader stated that London has continuously asked for the conditions to enable aid into Gaza, as well as the release of British people and hostages taken by Hamas operatives.

“We recognise for all of that to happen there has to be a safer environment which of course necessitates specific pauses as distinct from a ceasefire,” he told the House of Common.
