"I made clear the steps Israel must take to increase aid into Gaza, and the UK's deep concern about the prospect of a military offensive in Rafah," Cameron said. "These are tough but necessary conversations."
Cameron wrote in the statement that the UK supports Israel's right to defend itself but that it is responsible for the civilian population in the coastal strip.
"As an occupying power in Gaza, Israel has a legal responsibility to ensure aid is available for civilians," he wrote. "That responsibility has consequences including when we in as UK assess whether Israel is compliant with international law."
Gantz later met British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak who walked into the meeting the visiting Israeli minister was having with Britain's National Security Advisor Sir Tim Barrow at 10 Downing Street.
