Prince William has called for an “end to the fighting as soon as possible”, in a strongly worded intervention on the Israel-Gaza conflict.

His statement came as he visited the British Red Cross in London.The prince took part in a video link with Red Cross staff in Gaza, who gave him graphic first-hand accounts of their work.He heard warnings that without medical supplies or fuel, hospitals risked “becoming a cemetery” and that distributing humanitarian aid had become difficult because of looting by “hungry mobs”.Prince William was also told that the Red Cross was ready to help with the release of hostages.
