The situation in Gaza has led to an increase in anti-semitic attacks on British Jews.

Jewish advice group The Community Security Trust reported there were 130 anti-semitic incidents in July alone- the second highest monthly total on record.

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said the conflict in Gaza had now become “intolerable” and called for an “immediate ceasefire.”

Asked if the fighting in Gaza could lead to more attacks on British Jews, Hammond told the Telegraph: “Of course it’s a concern and we have already seen certainly an upturn in anti-Semitic rhetoric.”
