Dozens of British parliamentarians wear dog tags calling for the release of hostages held by Hamas during the Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons.

The initiative, which takes place on the four-month anniversary of the October 7 Hamas attacks, is the brainchild of Israel’s embassy in London.

Prominent lawmakers participated, including House Leader Penny Mordaunt, Foreign Affairs Committee head Alicia Kearns, and others from the Conservative Party, Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats, the Democratic Unionist Party, and others.

“We will not let up,” says Deputy Ambassador Oren Marmorstein. “We will continue to remind Britain and the whole world, we will continue to appear in every debate and in every plenum and we will continue to demand: ‘Release the hostages now!'”
