Tower Hamlets Mayor Lutfur Rahman condemns Gaza violence, asks William
Hague to call for immediate ceasefire.
“The Foreign Secretary must call for an immediate ceasefire before the
prospect of a ground offensive becomes a reality and more innocent
civilians suffer. The only possible consequence of the current
offensive in Gaza will be to stoke the flames of hatred and set back
the prospects for a lasting peace based on compliance with UN
resolutions and a return to 1967 borders.”
