G7 foreign ministers are urging “all parties” to “work to prevent further escalation” in the Middle East, following reports that Israel carried out a strike on Iran.

“In light of reports of strikes on April 19th, we urge all parties to work to prevent further escalation. The G7 will continue to work to this end,” the Group of Seven nations says in a statement after a meeting on the Italian island of Capri.
