British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak stated on Sunday that British military aircraft intercepted drones launched by Iran during its assault on Israel. Sunak urged for level-headedness to prevent the situation from escalating further.

“I can confirm that our planes did shoot down a number of Iranian attack drones,” Sunak told broadcasters.

“If this attack had been successful, the fallout for regional stability would be hard to overstate. We stand by the security of Israel and the wider region, which is of course important for our security here at home, too. What we now need is for calm heads to prevail.”

Sunak was scheduled to participate in talks among leaders of the Group of Seven later on Sunday.

“It’s important that we coordinate with allies and we’ll be discussing next steps at that moment,” he said.
