MOSCOW, September 6 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow urges Palestine and Israel to refrain from any steps towards heightening tension in each other’s relations, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Thursday.
“The situation on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip arouses concern. In recent times missiles have been launched on the Israeli territory. On September 6, Israel’s Air Force delivered strikes on the Gaza Strip. According to coming reports, three Palestinians were killed,” the ministry said.
“We consider these acts unacceptable. We call on the parties to refrain from any steps towards heightening tension in each other’s relations.” “The Israeli leadership condemned the recent extremist acts against Palestinians. It is necessary to curb all violent acts and take measures to create an atmosphere of trust between Palestinians and Israelis in order to resume the negotiating process as soon as possible,” the ministry said.
“Moscow voices concern about the escalation of the situation on the Palestinian territories. In August-September violent acts were committed against the Arab population on the West Bank. Palestinians were attacked. Damage was caused to their houses and property,” the ministry said.
On September 4, the Latrun Catholic Monastery was fired. Humiliations towards Christians were left on the walls of the monastery.
