Bradford MP David Ward has apologised for comments he made on Twitter about Israel and Gaza.
The Liberal Democrat said in a statement through the party:
– David Ward MP
I utterly condemn the violence on both sides in Israel and Gaza.
I condemn the actions of Hamas, and my comments were not in support of firing rockets into Israel. If they gave the opposite impression, I apologise.
However, while I defend the right of Israel to exist and defend itself, I will continue to speak out for the rights of the Palestinian people who are facing untold suffering. More must be done by the world community to end this humanitarian crisis and protect the families living in Gaza. I can understand their plight and desperation.
A cease fire in this conflict is essential. If we are to end the suffering, and establish a safer society for people in Gaza, the first step must be an end to violence on both sides.
.@libdempress say: “In light of apology, whips and party will decide in due course if further disciplinary action should be taken.”
