G7 leaders condemn Iran’s attack on Israel, attempts to destabilize the Middle East

US President Joe Biden spoke with leaders of the G7 nations about Iran’s attack on Israel a short while ago, the White House says in a statement.

The G7 leaders condemned Iran’s attack on Israel and said that they would work to try to stabilize the situation in the Middle East.

“With its actions, Iran has further stepped toward the destabilization of the region and risks provoking an uncontrollable regional escalation. This must be avoided,” a statement issued by G7 president Italy says, after a video conference involving the group’s leaders.

The leaders also warned of the need to avoid further escalation in the wider region, Bloomberg reports, and called for a ceasefire in Israel’s war against Hamas and the release of the 129 hostages taken captive on October 7 and still held by terror groups in Gaza.
