800 US, EU officials pen letter slamming West’s stance on Gaza

LONDON: A group of about 800 officials spanning the US, UK and EU have signed a public letter condemning the support of their governments for Israel’s war in Gaza.

It is the first time that officials from across Western countries have coalesced to criticize the levels of support their governments have given toward Israel, supporters told the New York Times.

The letter urges a change in direction by Western governments toward the war, with signatories warning that they tried to raise concerns internally but were rebuffed.
