British MPs Called to Debate Syria Strike - and Bicker Over Israel

In a session dedicated to chemical weapons allegedly used by Damascus, veteran Labor MP Gerald Kaufman said that Israel too used such weapons in Gaza.

During the lengthy debate in the British parliament over a possible military intervention in Syria on Thursday, Israel barely featured. A couple of members of the House of Commons and of the Lords raised the possibility of a Syrian retaliation against other countries in the region, including Israel.
