LFI parliamentary supporter Wayne David MP

At today’s FCDO questions session, Labour’s shadow Middle East minister and LFI parliamentary supporter Wayne David MP pushed the government on what steps it was taking to counteract Iran’s support for terrorist proxies across the Middle East, including Hamas, Hezbollah and the Houthis.

He asked: “Today the Middle East is in danger of seeing a major escalation of conflict, and whether it is in Gaza, the Red sea, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria or Jordan, we are seeing aggression. If there is a common denominator in those conflicts, it is the malign influence of Iran, usually through its proxies. What are the Government doing to disrupt and stop the disruptive activities of Iran?”
