Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and British Prime Minister Rishi Runak are slated to talk in the coming minutes, a diplomatic official tells The Times of Israel.

The Kan public broadcaster reported earlier today that Netanyahu was avoiding a call from Sunak since yesterday.

Sunak told the House of Commons yesterday that he would “shortly speak to Prime Minister Netanyahu to express our solidarity with Israel… and to discuss how we can prevent further escalation,” in the wake of the massive Iranian aerial bombardment of Israel early Sunday.
