Sharing is Caring!
The UK summoned Israel’s ambassador in London Tuesday to hear its “unequivocal condemnation” of the killing of three British and four other staff of a food charity in a Gaza missile strike. 

The summons, which the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office said the Israeli ambassador attended, came as Prime Minister Rishi Sunak called on Israel for answers about the “tragic incident”.

The British leader added it must “take immediate steps to protect aid workers and facilitate vital humanitarian operations in Gaza”.

Meanwhile, junior UK foreign minister Andrew Mitchell said after the summons that he had requested “a quick and transparent investigation, shared with the international community, and full accountability”.
