Responding to the terrorist violence by Hamas in Israel, Liberal Democrat Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Layla Moran MP said:
“I am horrified to wake up to such dreadful scenes of violence in Israel and Palestine this morning.
“Last year, I met with Israelis living in villages on the Gaza border. I am mortified to learn that these places are facing terrorist attacks as we speak. My thoughts are with those I met, and their safety, and all those others affected by this awful violence.
“Liberal Democrats fully condemn the terrorism of Hamas and Islamic Jihad. This violence must cease. I am profoundly worried about the prospect for broader escalation.”
