Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has called on Boris Johnson and other world leaders to end the “killing of innocent people” amid continued unrest between Israelis and Palestinians.

The Egyptian footballer said “enough is enough” in a post on Twitter in which he mentioned the Prime Minister’s official account, although he did not reveal what it was in reference to.

It comes after at least 30 people have died following weeks of tensions in Jerusalem, which has led to calls for a de-escalation on all sides from the international community.

The Liverpool forward tweeted: “I’m calling on all the world leaders including on the Prime Minister of the country that has been my home for the past 4 years to do everything in their power to make sure the violence and killing of innocent people stops immediately.

“Enough is enough.”

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab is among those to have called for an end to ongoing violence in Jerusalem and Gaza, urging for an “end to targeting of civilian populations” on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesperson Layla Moran said she has been granted an Urgent Question in the Commons on Wednesday on the issue.

The MP said on Twitter: “The UK Govt must set out its plan to work with our international partners to facilitate a de-escalation now.”
