2017-19 Session
That this House expresses grave concern and condemnation over the escalating conflict between Iran and Israel in reaction to President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action; condemns the decision by the President of the US to defy and undermine the agreement and re-impose economic sanctions on Iran; regrets the intensification of tensions in that region, which is already in turmoil; further condemns the Iranian and Israeli forces for launching attacks on each other in and over Syria; highlights the devastation caused to Syrian civilians and infrastructure which has been enduring its own civil war since 2011, along with playing host to Israel, Saudi Arabia and Iran's proxy war; and urges the Government to condemn in the strongest terms those attacks and to work with allies to continue the Iranian nuclear agreement and to extinguish tensions and find a peaceful solution in that region.
