A team of NHS staff will "play a crucial role" in helping those caught up in the conflict in Gaza, Prime Minister David Cameron said
A British team of doctors, nurses, surgeons, anaesthetists and paramedics will be flown to Gaza in the next 48 hours amid renewed fighting in the region.
"The conflict in Gaza has taken a terrible toll. The UK has been at the forefront of humanitarian efforts to help those affected and it is right that we see what more we can do," Mr Cameron said.
"The NHS has always stepped up to the plate to help those in need and this expert team will play a crucial role in helping hundreds caught up in this conflict."
There have been two days of quiet in Gaza. No rockets or missiles, no more destroyed houses, no more ambulance sirens screaming.
