MOSCOW, March 11 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow expresses deep concern about the escalation of violence in the Gaza Strip and in the south of Israel, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Sunday.
“In the past 24 hours Israel and the Gaza Strip exchanged new rounds of strikes. The Gaza Strip fired about hundreds of projectiles at the south of Israel. Several people were injured. As a result of Israel air strikes at least 16 Palestinians died. Among those who were killed were members of the leadership and activists of the Popular Resistance Committees and militants of the Islamic Jihad movement. About 20 people were wounded,” the ministry said.
Moscow “voices deep concern about the escalation of armed confrontation. It is inadmissible to use any force that affect peaceful civilians. Force should be excluded”, the ministry said.
Russia urged all parties “to show restraint and do everything possible to restore quiet and create conditions for resuming the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations on the accepted legal framework”, the ministry stressed.
