Britain Calls for Immediate Ceasefire


Britain's Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond, spoke on Sunday with Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, and stressed London’s position calling for an immediate, unconditional ceasefire in Gaza.

"It is tragic when people die in a place being used as a shelter," Hammond said, referring to the shelling of an UNRWA school in Rafiah. "Hamas too must stop firing rockets into Israel and endanger the lives of civilians," he added.
