Foreign secretary says Red Sea military action ‘completely separate’ from Israel-Hamas war

Foreign secretary David Cameron claims that the UK’s action against the Houthis in the Red Sea is ‘completely separate’ from the Israel-Hamas war.

Lord Cameron appeared on Sky News this morning (14 January), where he addressed claims that blocking the action of the Houthis shows a lack of compassion towards Palestine.

“It’s unacceptable, we have to act, and there’s a very large number of allies that agree with that”, he said.

Cameron claims that military action was a ‘last resort’ but hasn’t ruled out further intervention.
