British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Friday issued a statement warning that a planned pro-Palestinian protest in London would be “provocative and disrespectful”, as he deputed Home Secretary Suella Braverman to intervene.

The protest planned for Armistice Day on November 11, also known as Remembrance Day commemorates the end of hostilities during World War I in 1918 and honours the martyrs of both World Wars, will follow similar weekend protests in the UK since the Israel-Gaza conflict intensified last month.
