    Tony Blair has said in an interview that Israel has the right to check supplies that are sent into Gaza.

    Speaking on Israeli television, the former British prime minister and Middle East Quartet envoy said the Gaza blockade should be lifted but "when it comes to security, I am one hundred per cent on Israel's side."

    Mr Blair added: "There's no question that there are rockets fired from Gaza and that there are people in Gaza who want to kill innocent Israelis.

    “Israel has the right to inspect what goes into Gaza."

    He also said that any probe into the clashes between pro-Palestinian activists and the Israel navy should be "full and impartial”.

    Mr Blair reiterated concerns about Iran gaining nuclear weapons. “That is not something we should contemplate or allow," he said.
