The First Minister said: “Today at Westminster MPs were presented with the chance to vote in favour of the SNP ceasefire. This was a plea to put humanity before politics by endorsing a ceasefire.
“Too many parents have had to bury their children in Gaza. Too many children have become orphaned. Too many have suffered. And for far too long.
“A ceasefire would enable a humanitarian corridor and the crucial delivery of immediate aid to those in desperate need. I am beyond angry that Scottish Labour MPs and others refused to back the calls for an immediate ceasefire.
“They are on the wrong side of history, which is unforgivable.
“Over 4,500 innocent children have been killed in Gaza. The World Health Organisation has reported a heartbreaking statistic a child has been killed every 10 minutes.
“Let that sink in and know there are haunting images of tiny premature babies who have been removed from the incubators because the situation is so dire.
