Shadow defence secretary urges Sunak to set out plans to ‘pursue peace’ in Middle East

Labour’s shadow defence secretary has urged Rishi Sunak to set out the government’s actions to “pursue the path of peace” in the Middle East.

John Healey made the comments after Iran launched an “unprecedented” attack on Israel, which it said was in retaliation against a strike on an Iranian diplomatic compound in Syria earlier this month.

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.

“This is the most serious and most dangerous moment since Hamas launched that unprecedented terror attack on Israel on October 7,” Mr Healey told BBC Breakfast on Monday 15 April.
