Government of United Kingdom: Statement on developments in the Middle East

The UK is gravely concerned by the escalating crisis in Lebanon. Not only does it pose a serious threat to the relationship between the Israeli’s and Lebanese governments but it also threatens the wider security of the region, and it is also causing huge harm to the civilian populations with casualties mounting on both sides. We offer our condolences to the Governments of Lebanon and Israel for the losses they have suffered and to the families of all those affected. The UK is committed to helping resolve this crisis.
