The UK government has announced plans to deploy two Royal Navy ships and surveillance aircraft to the eastern Mediterranean in order to enhance security. This decision comes in response to the recent violence following an attack on Israel by Hamas. The surveillance aircraft will begin patrols to monitor threats to regional stability, such as the transfer of weapons to terrorist groups. Additionally, three Merlin helicopters and Royal Marines will be dispatched. The government is also arranging flights for British nationals stranded in Israel. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak emphasized the importance of humanitarian concerns and the protection of civilians. The Royal Navy assets will be moved to the Mediterranean to provide humanitarian support if needed. Defence Secretary Grant Shapps clarified that the Royal Navy vessels are not warships but rather ships that can provide hospital facilities. He also stated that their presence aims to deter involvement in the region and counteract malign external influence. The UK government has expressed support for Israel's right to defend itself and has been in contact with international partners to ensure humanitarian aid reaches the victims of the attack.
