Foreign Sec: COBRA meeting reaffirms support for Israel

The foreign secretary says the government has "reaffirmed" its support for Israel's "right to defend itself" against a "terrorist attack perpetrated by Hamas" during a COBRA meeting in Downing Street, as the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group escalates.

James Cleverly adds that he has spoken with his counterparts in the region, including the Egyptian Foreign Minister about its land border and crossing point from Israel.
