At least six Britons killed in Hamas’s ‘pogrom’ in Israel, Sunak says

The Prime Minister said a further 10 British citizens are missing, some of whom are feared dead.

At least six British citizens were killed in Hamas’s “pogrom” in Israel and a further 10 are missing, Rishi Sunak has told MPs.

The Prime Minister told the Commons that more than 1,400 people were murdered, over 3,500 wounded and almost 200 taken hostage.

“The elderly, men, women, children, babes in arms, murdered, mutilated, burned alive,” he continued.

“We should call it by its name: it was a pogrom.”

Mr Sunak said the family of some of the missing were in Parliament watching his statement.

Of the 10 missing, he said some are feared to be among the dead as the UK works with Israel to establish the facts and supports the families through their “unimaginable pain”.
