Parliamentarians hear from the families of Israeli hostages held in Gaza.

This afternoon, Labour MPs and peers attended a briefing with the families of some of the around 220 Israeli hostages currently being held in Gaza by Hamas, following the horrific terror attacks by Hamas on 7 October.

They heard the harrowing testimony about the hostages’ experiences, and their families’ fears about their fates.

The cross-party briefing, hosted by the Britain-Israel APPG in Parliament, was also attended by Israel’s ambassador to the UK, Tzipi Hotovely.
