THE MP for Walsall North, David Winnick, has spoken out about the ongoing crisis in the Middle East and says a ceasefire is needed "as quickly as possible".

Mr Winnick also called for on leading western states, in particular the United States of America, to warn Israel not to mount a ground attack on Gaza to reduce the number of civilian casualties. It comes as the Walsall MP challenged Foreign Secretary William Hague MP about the issue in Parliament this week.

Mr Winnick added: "No one is trying to justify rocket firing into Israel, but does the Foreign Secretary recognise that Israeli air strikes have caused so many civilian casualties in Gaza that the killing of children – the burning to death of children – should be considered a war crime?"
