Six months after the October 7 attack, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak issued a statement calling for an end to the "horrendous war" between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas.

"We continue to stand by Israel's right to defeat the threat from Hamas terrorists and defend their security. But the whole of the UK is shocked by the bloodshed and appalled by the killing of brave British heroes who were bringing food to those in need," he said, urging an end to the military actions, the release of Israeli hostages, and massive humanitarian aid deliveries to Gaza.

"It's been six months since the most appalling attack and the worst loss of Jewish life since the Second World War. Israeli wounds are still unhealed. Families still mourn, and hostages are still held by Hamas", he reminded.

The politician also emphasized the suffering of Gaza residents. "The children of Gaza need an immediate humanitarian ceasefire leading to a "long-term sustainable ceasefire." This is the fastest way to release hostages and provide humanitarian aid – to end the war, to end the loss of life."
