LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak set out further aid for the Palestinian people on Monday, saying the government would provide an additional 20 million pounds ($24.4 million) of humanitarian support for Gaza.

“We need a constant stream of aid pouring in, bringing the water, food, medicine and fuel that is so desperately needed,” Sunak told lawmakers in an update on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

“We are providing an additional 20 million pounds of humanitarian aid to civilians in Gaza, more than doubling our previous support to the Palestinian people.”
