The Israeli army’s tactics and the aftermath of the Gaza conflict have been discussed at length during a special House of Lords debate.
An additional session of the Upper House was convened last Friday, with 34 peers taking the opportunity to give their views on Operation Cast Lead and the subsequent humanitarian crisis.
Many recalled their personal experiences of visits to both sides of the border.
Lord Janner brought to the chamber pieces of a shattered car tail light and a bomb fragment which he had collected in the aftermath of a rocket attack on Sderot last month.
