“I am saddened by the decision of councillors Aziz and Latif to leave the Labour Party. I would like to thank them for their service to local residents as Labour councillors.

Labour fully supports Israel’s right to defend itself from the indefensible actions of Hamas, to rescue hostages and protect civilians in line with international law.

We must distinguish Hamas terrorists from the Palestinian people. There must be humanitarian access to Gaza, for food, water, medicines and electricity.

The Labour Party will continue to be strong and consistent advocates for justice, human rights and international law in this conflict, and to condemn the unacceptable use of violence against civilians.

There will not be a just and lasting peace until both Israelis and Palestinians enjoy security, dignity and human rights.

Oxford Labour Council stands in solidarity with the innocent civilians of Palestine and Israel. We will continue to support and defend the Oxford Jewish community and all those who have been affected by the tragic events in Israel and Gaza.”

Councillor Susan Brown, Leader of Oxford City Council
