David Cameron Visits Israel After UK PM Urges Netanyahu For Restraint

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has warned that, in the aftermath of Iran’s unprecedented missile and drone onslaught, cool heads must prevail. He made his announcement just hours before Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron was about to visit Israel.

Cameron is anticipated to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel Katz, the foreign minister, and Benny Gantz, the cabinet minister of war.

The secretary is anticipated to urge Israel to fulfill its pledges on the entry of more humanitarian supplies into Gaza and emphasize the need for a deconfliction zone for humanitarian workers during his one-day visit.

Israel’s foreign minister is ‘leading a diplomatic attack’ by sending letters to 32 countries requesting that they sanction Iran’s missile program and join Washington in labeling the Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization.

The US has declared that it will be imposing fresh sanctions on Iran shortly. These penalties will target the country’s missile and drone programs, as well as organizations that assist the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Iranian Defense Ministry. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan guaranteed a united reaction, and Sunak reaffirmed the UK’s unwavering support for Israel’s security and broader regional stability.

It is estimated that half of Gaza’s population is starving to death, and Sunak has called on the UK to do something to alleviate this humanitarian catastrophe. A dramatic improvement in humanitarian access to Gaza, including the opening of new channels by Israel, is something the United Kingdom is striving for.

To keep the Middle East from becoming worse, Western countries are thinking about imposing more sanctions on Iran.

Using sanctions and cooperation with allies, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has declared that the US will impede Iran’s malign and destabilizing activity. Josep Borrell, the head of EU foreign policy, has said that some member states have requested the expansion of sanctions on Iran. This would mean that the current sanctions system, which aims to limit the delivery of Iranian missiles, drones to Russia, and proxies in the Middle East, would be increased.

Even the “slightest action” by Israel in reaction to Iran’s strike will result in a “painful response,” according to Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.

In light of Iran’s nuclear danger, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Director General Rafael Grossi cautioned Israel and called for utmost prudence.
