Statement of the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs on Israel’s Decision to Launch Ground Force Operation in Gaza Strip


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic is deeply concerned that the attempts to restore cease-fire in the Gaza Strip has not succeeded. We regret that Hamas and other militant groups did not accept the cease-fire conditions as proposed by Egypt and the UN.

In recent hours, we have witnessed far too many lost lives, including children´s lives. We condemn the use of civilians as human shields. It is essential a ceasefire were negotiated to end the violence and suffering of the civilian population. The only solution is the one securing peace and security in Gaza and Israel.
