The UK Government has condemned "acts of terrorism by Hamas" in the Middle East and called for a de-escalation of tensions in the region.
Foreign Office minister James Cleverly said that Israel "has a legitimate right to self-defence" but added that "it is vital that all actions are proportionate".
Mr Cleverly also said the Government is "concerned" that buildings housing media organisations have been destroyed.
