Lord Cameron issues Israeli ‘a**hole’ Prime Minister a warning

12th Feb 24 4:42 pm

The British Foreign Secretary has issued the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a warning to “stop and think very seriously” as the UK are “very concerned” of the situation in the Gaza city of Rafah following the invasion.

Lord David Cameron warned Netanyahu that it is “impossible to see how you can fight a war against” thousands of civilians, he said that there is “nowhere for them to go.”

Overnight Israel conducted airstrikes on the town and Netanyahu has suggested military activity will continue with a possible ground offensive in Rafah.

“We want Israel to stop and think very seriously before it takes any further action,” said Lord Cameron.

“Above all, what we want is an immediate pause in the fighting – we want that pause to lead to a ceasefire, a sustainable ceasefire without a return to further fighting. That is what should happen now.

“We need to get those hostages out, including the British nationals. We need to get the aid in. The best way to do that is to stop the fighting now and turn that into a permanent, sustainable ceasefire.”

Lord Cameron added, “We are very concerned about what is happening in Rafah, because let’s be clear the people there, many of who have moved four, five, six times before getting there.

“It really, we think, is impossible to see how you can fight a war amongst these people, there is nowhere for them to go.

“They can’t go south into Egypt, they can’t go north and back to their homes because many have been destroyed.”

On Sunday the US President Joe Biden warned Netanyahu that Israel cannot conduct a military operation without any “credible and executable” plan.

President Biden called Netanyahu an “a**hole” three times, three sources have claimed amid his frustration of the ongoing conflict.

The Labour leader warned that the invasion on Rafah would be “catastrophic” for the 1.4 million displaced Palestinians civilians.

Sir Keir Starmer said, “There are over 1.4 million displaced Palestinians in Rafah and it is the gateway to aid for Gaza – an Israeli offensive there would be catastrophic.

“The fighting must stop now. We need a sustainable ceasefire.”

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said, “We are obviously deeply concerned about the prospect of a military offensive in Rafah.

“Over half of Gaza’s population are sheltering there and that crossing is vital to ensuring aid can reach the people who desperately need it.”
