The senior Foreign Office minister Baroness Warsi has resigned over David Cameron's stance on the Gaza conflict.

Announcing her resignation this morning, the former Chair of the Conservative Party said that she had written to the Prime Minister "and tendered [her] resignation".

"I can no longer support Government policy on Gaza," she wrote.

In her letter to Mr Cameron, Lady Warsi wrote that the Government's approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had been "morally indefensible" and not "in Britain's national interest".

Her resignation is a significant setback for the Prime Minister, who has faced criticism for failing to condemn Israel’s military action in Gaza and its recent apparent air strike on a UN-run school in Rafah more forcefully.

The Rafah shelling, which killed at least 10 Palestinians - four of whom were children aged between five and 12 - provoked recriminations from around the world
