The Spanish parliament will reportedly vote on recognizing Palestine as a sovereign state.

Throughout the debate, the plight of the Palestinians was reportedly highlighted by many MPs. Meanwhile, the UK ambassador to Israel, Matthew Gould, said public sentiment in Britain and around the world has shifted against Israel following its recent 50-day onslaught on the Gaza Strip.
