UK minister says he hopes de-escalation still possible after alleged Israeli strike in Iran

Britain’s Work and Pensions Secretary Mel Stride says he hopes that de-escalation between Israel and Iran is still possible, responding to reports Israel launched an attack on Iranian soil early this morning.

“Whilst we don’t know the details at the moment, my hope is that whatever has happened is of a nature where de-escalation can now be the way forward,” Stride tells GB News.

“This is clearly an emerging story,” the UK minister says, while noting that “Israel has a right to self defense.”
