British Foreign Minister David Cameron says an investigation by the Israel Defense Forces into this week’s deadly airstrikes on Rafah must be “swift, comprehensive and transparent,” again calling for a pause in fighting.

“Deeply distressing scenes following the air strikes in Rafah this weekend. The IDF’s investigation must be swift, comprehensive and transparent,” Cameron writes on X.

“We urgently need a deal to get hostages out and aid in, with a pause in fighting to allow work towards a long-term sustainable ceasefire.”

The IDF announced yesterday that the strike, which targeted two senior Hamas officials in the southern Gaza city but also reportedly killed dozens of Palestinian civilians, will be probed by the top-tier General Staff Fact-Finding Assessment Mechanism.
