Cameron urges Israel to ‘think with head as well as heart’ after Iran attacks

David Cameron has urged Israel to “think with head as well as heart” after Iran’s attack.

The foreign secretary added that the “right thing to do is not to escalate” and instead focus the world’s attention back onto Hamas.

Israel said Iran launched 170 drones, more than 30 cruise missiles and at least 120 ballistic missiles in an assault that set off air raid sirens across the country on Sunday 14 April.

“We are urging them - as friends - to think with head as well as heart, to be smart as well as tough,” Lord Cameron told BBC Breakfast.

He also described the attack as a “double defeat” for Iran.
