According to The Times (of London), British officials dispute the effectiveness of Israel?s bombing campaign and warn of a potential backlash.

?A senior British official said: ?Our concern is that Israeli military action is not having the desired effect. We?re not seeing the level of impact [which Israel and its allies would want].? ?

With over 300 Lebanese killed, and the fighting ongoing, British officials depart from the U.S. position, which reportedly is to allow the conflict to continue for another week.

?We are concerned that continued military operations by Israel will cause further damage to infrastructure and loss of civilian life which the damage to Hezbollah will not justify,? one British official said.
