World leaders condemn Iran’s missile and drone attacks launched at Israel

Leaders from around the world condemned Iran’s drone and missile attacks on Israel and appealed for peace in the Middle East.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said he condemned Iran’s “reckless” attack on Israel.

“I condemn in the strongest terms the Iranian regime’s reckless attack on Israel,” Sunak said in a statement. “Iran has once again shown that it intends to cause chaos in its own backyard.”

“The UK continues to protect the security of Israel and all our regional partners, including Jordan and Iraq,” he added. “Together with our allies, we are working urgently to stabilize the situation and prevent further escalation.”

“No one wants to see more bloodshed,” Sunak said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined British leaders in saying Canada “unequivocally condemns” the Iranian attack.

“Canada unequivocally condemns Iran’s airborne attack on Israel. We stand with Israel.” “The Iranian regime’s recent actions after supporting Hamas’s brutal attack on October 7 will further destabilize the region and make durable peace even more difficult.”

German Foreign Minister Annalena Verbock said an Iranian attack “could throw the entire region into chaos.”

“We strongly condemn the ongoing attacks that have the potential to throw the entire region into chaos,” Burbock said in a translated X post. “Iran and her proxies must stop this immediately. We must take this time to unite our collective strength and head to Israel.”

Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ambassador Michael Herzog, said Iran “must take responsibility” for the missile and drone attacks.

“Iran has been the most volatile power in the Middle East for decades and is responsible for the escalation in violence that began on October 7 and has been seen in the region since then,” Herzog said on the X-Post. “We have to take responsibility and we have to take responsibility.”

“Israel deeply appreciates the United States’ unwavering support and unwavering commitment to security at this critical time.” “Israel will do anything to protect itself.”
