The Minister responsible for the Middle East, James Cleverly, answered questions from lawmakers in the program entitled “Urgent Questions on the Israel Gaza Ceasefire” held in the House of Commons.

Workers’ Party MP Richard Burgon, who had a voice in the program, addressed the British government and said: “The more Palestinian children are killed, the more Palestinian homes have to be destroyed, the more Palestinian schools and their homes must be bombed. “It is time to recognize Palestine as a state because it also has the right to exist,” used the expression.


Burgon also called on the government to stop arms sales and impose sanctions on Israel, which violates international law with its attacks on Palestine.

Cleverly, on the other hand, said Israel’s attacks were a response to Hamas rocket attacks.

Reiterating that Israel has the right to defend itself, the Minister said that in doing so, they should act proportionately to minimize civilian casualties.

Ably stated that they were horrified by the deaths of Israeli or Palestinian civilians and that their priority was to end the current conflict rather than recognize Palestine.

Leyla Moran, the Palestinian-born MP from the Labor Party, said she read the names of 14 Palestinian children and 1 Israeli children who lost their lives in her speech in parliament last week, and that the number of children who lost their lives due to Israeli bombs rose to 63.

“We need an urgent ceasefire. Britain should not have left France to be the main sponsor of a UN resolution that wants it.” The British government has shirked its historic responsibility and it is time to take a step, Moran said.

Moran intelligently asked why the British government, which claimed to be loyal to lasting peace in Palestine, still did not recognize Palestine.
Skillfully declared that they were working with international partners to secure peace, that they wanted an end to violence and a ceasefire, and that they were loyal to a two-state solution.

Former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn stressed the public has a right to know about military relations between the UK government and Israel and asked Cleverly to share details of military cooperation between the two countries.

Corbyn also asked if any weapons or ammunition sold by Britain to Israel had been used in the bombing of Gaza.

Avoiding answering this question, Cleverly noted that his country has a strict arms export licensing regime and all arms sales are assessed accordingly.

The Israeli attack on Masjid al-Aqsa worshipers in occupied East Jerusalem during Ramadan and plans to force residents of Sheikh Cerrah neighborhood from their homes have increased tension in the area.

Palestinian resistance groups in the Gaza Strip allowed Israeli police to withdraw from Masjid al-Aqsa and the Sheikh Cerrah neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem until 6 p.m. local time on Monday, May 10.

After the Israeli police failed to withdraw from Masjid al-Aqsa and Sheikh Jarrah, Palestinian resistance groups fired numerous rockets at Israel.
Thereupon, the IDF announced that a military operation called “Wall Guard” had been launched against the Gaza Strip.
