TEL AVIV: British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak arrived in Israel on Thursday, offering a strong show of support for the nation as it grapples with the aftermath of a devastating attack by Hamas. Sunak's visit underscores the unity of Western leaders in their stand against terrorism and in solidarity with Israel.

Speaking on his arrival in Tel Aviv, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak condemned the recent attack by Hamas, describing it as an 'unprecedented horrific act of terrorism.' His words reflect the shock and horror that resonated globally as Israel faced a devastating attack that resulted in significant loss of life and destruction.

In a resounding show of support, Sunak emphasized, "I want you to know that the United Kingdom and I stand with you." These words, delivered after meetings with Israeli leaders, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Isaac Harzog, send a powerful message of solidarity and unwavering support.

Rishi Sunak joins other prominent Western leaders who have recently visited Israel to express their solidarity. Notably, U.S. President Joe Biden made a similar trip earlier, underlining the international community's commitment to standing with Israel in these challenging times.

Prime Minister Sunak's visit is not only symbolic but also signifies a commitment to addressing the broader regional conflict. His focus will be on efforts to prevent further violence and work towards a lasting resolution. The October 7 attacks by Hamas, which tragically claimed the lives of nearly 1,400 people in Israel, have prompted a renewed commitment by world leaders to address the root causes of such violence and seek a path to peace.
