THE SNP Westminster leader Stephen Flynn has demanded Parliament is recalled if Israel launch a full ground invasion in Gaza.

Speaking on Twitter/X, Flynn said "it'd be inconceivable for the doors of the UK Parliament to remain shut".

The UK Parliament is closing down in preparation for Charles's King's Speech on November 7, where he will set out the UK Government's plans for the final parliamentary session ahead of the next election.

Responding to the news that the IDF had expanded ground operations into Gaza, Flynn said: "If accurate, and a ground incursion is about to occur, it’d be inconceivable for the doors of the UK Parliament to remain shut.

"With UK citizens trapped in Gaza and potential for huge regional and international impact, a recall would have to take place to press for a ceasefire."

UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said in a statement on Twitter/X that the UK Government "support[s] Israel's right to self defence" in line with International Human Law.

This comes as Gaza loses communication and internet amid Israeli bombardment.

First Minister Humza Yousaf confirmed he was no longer able to contact his family, who had been trapped in Gaza for almost three weeks.

The First Minister, as well as Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar and London Mayor Sadiq Khan, have all called for an immediate ceasefire.

However, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and leader of the opposition Sir Keir Starmer have not yet joined calls.

In a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sunak previously said "we want you [Israel] to win".

Starmer, in an interview with LBC, said Israel "has the right" to withhold power and water from Gaza.

He later backtracked on Wednesday in a statement on Twitter/X, where he said "we have repeatedly said that aid, fuel, water, electricity and medicines must be urgently ramped up both through what can come in through the Rafah crossing and through Israel turning back on the supplies it controls".

Labour potentially face multiple frontbench resignations over Starmer's stance on Gaza, including shadow faith minister Sarah Owen and shadow Cabinet Office minister Rachel Hopkins.

Some 150 Labour councillors wrote to Starmer and his deputy Angela Rayner on Wednesday urging an "immediate ceasefire" in Gaza.
