British Labour Party members have voted to recognize Israel as an apartheid regime. They also urged the party's leader to campaign for sanctions on the regime which has the blood of so many Palestinians on its hands.

The motion received overwhelming support from members which also demanded Labour campaign for sanctions on the Israeli regime.

The conference is held by Labour every year, the Palestinian cause is always a key debate held between members.

However, party leadership are under no obligation to act on motions.

Starmer's team was quick to side with Israel, rejecting the motion as an 'unbalanced' approach.

Although party leadership distanced itself from the result, the Palestinian Ambassador to London praised the result on social media
