Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has condemned the "intolerable" suffering of the people of Gaza.
Mr Hammond told The Sunday Telegraph he had received thousands of emails from the British public who were "deeply disturbed" by the ongoing conflict.
"It's a broad swathe of British public opinion that feels deeply, deeply disturbed by what it is seeing on its television screens, coming out of Gaza," Hammond said.
“The British public has a strong sense that the situation of the civilian population in Gaza is intolerable and must be addressed — and we agree with them.”
There have been two days of quiet in Gaza. No rockets or missiles, no more destroyed houses, no more ambulance sirens screaming.
A three-year-old girl has been rescued from Gaza and brought to London for life-saving heart surgery.
A small team of NHS doctors and surgeons is travel to Gaza to set up facilities and establish how best to use specialists and equipment.
