Labour Party leader Ed Miliband has said he is firmly opposed to Israel’s ground invasion of Gaza.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Mr Miliband said: “We oppose the Israeli incursion into Gaza. I don't think it will help win Israel friends. I don't think this will make the situation better. I fear it will make it worse.”
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is to dismantle the Likud-Beiteinu partnership.
Mr Lieberman said that he was withdrawing Yisrael Beiteinu from the party list it shares with Likud after he and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu disagreed over how to respond to the rocket fire from Gaza.
