UK PM sacks Interior Minister over Palestine remarks

London: British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak sacked his Interior Minister Suella Braverman on Monday after her criticism of the police’s handling of a pro-Palestinian march divided his party and threatened his authority.

Under fire from opposition lawmakers and members of the governing Conservative Party to eject Braverman, Sunak seemed to have brought forward a long-planned reshuffle to bring in allies and remove ministers he felt were not performing.

Following her dismissal, Braverman said “it has been the greatest privilege of my life to serve as home secretary”. “I will have more to say in due course,” she added.

Palestinian martyrdom toll has reached 11,100 as Israeli bombardments and armed clashes around the Shifa hospital in Gaza city intensified damaging critical infrastructure, including the oxygen station, water tanks and a well, the cardiovascular facility, and the maternity ward, while killing three nurses.

Gaza death toll has not been updated since Friday, according to the last update, in Gaza at least 11,100 are martyred Including at least 4,506 children and 3,027 women. At least 27,490 are injured Including at least 8,663 children and 6,327 women.
