Keir Starmer to set out policy on Israel-Gaza war amid Labour tensions
In a speech on Tuesday, the Labour leader is expected to restate his support for a “humanitarian pause” to allow aid into Gaza.
He will argue a permanent ceasefire would leave Hamas with the capability to carry out more attacks.
Several senior Labour figures have called for a full ceasefire.
Mayors Sadiq Khan and Andy Burnham, Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar and several frontbenchers are among those who have diverged from the official party line on the issue.
More than 50 Labour MPs and 250 councillors have also called for a ceasefire, with around 30 councillors resigning from the party over the leadership’s position on the war.
