London police said yesterday that they had boosted patrols across parts of the city following the attacks on Israel by the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
“We are aware of a number of incidents… in relation to the ongoing conflict in Israel and the border with Gaza,” the Metropolitan Police said on social media.
“The Met has increased policing patrols across parts of London in order to provide a visible presence and reassurance to our communities,” it said.
Britain’s interior minister Suella Braverman said there should be “zero tolerance for anti-Semitism or glorification of terrorism on the streets of Britain”.
“I expect the police to use the full force of the law against displays of support for Hamas, other proscribed terrorist groups or attempts to intimidate British Jews,” Braverman wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
