LFI vice-chair Cat McKinnell raises Israel’s security and two state solution

LFI vice-chair Catherine McKinnell MP

At today’s Urgent Question on the Israel-Hamas War in the House of Commons, LFI parliamentary supporter Catherine McKinnell MP asked the Minister what steps the UK is pursuing with international partners to ensure the security of Israel and to allow for the rebuilding and a path toward statehood for Palestine.

She asked “Hamas are an obstacle to peace and a two-state solution, and they must release all hostages now. While pushing for that as a means to further pauses in hostilities, can the Minister confirm what discussions are taking place with international partners to create the
conditions where Israel is secure and Palestinians can see a path to reconstruction, renewal
and statehood in Gaza?”
