Gaza needs 500 aid trucks per day to avoid famine and disease, says David Cameron


David Cameron urges Hamas to accept hostage deal as he reiterates call for ‘permanent sustainable ceasefire’

David Cameron has urged Hamas to accept the hostage deal as he reiterated a call for a "permanent sustainable ceasefire".

The foreign secretary's remarks in Berlin on Thursday, 7 March, came after Hamas's delegation left talks in Cairo without a deal for a Gaza ceasefire ahead of Ramadan.

Lord Cameron also called for 500 aid trucks a day to prevent famine in Gaza as he downplayed a diplomatic rift with Germany.

"No-one is doing more than Britain and Germany to pile that pressure on, let’s remember that there’s a group of people that could stop this conflict right now. And that is Hamas," Lord Cameron said.
