Cameron condemned what he called Iran’s “despicable” attempt to smuggle weapons into Gaza and the repeated rocket fire from that territory. Shortly after his speech, Gaza militants fired rockets into southern Israel.
Cameron also criticized what he said was a history by the Palestinian government in the West Bank of venerating people who have carried out attacks on Israelis.
