MFA Statement on the Rocket Attacks from Gaza


The MFA strongly condemns the ongoing inexcusable rocket attacks from Gaza that are directed at the civilian areas across Israel, and which until now caused deaths of four Israeli citizens. We call on all the Palestinian parties involved to stop them immediately. The security of Israel and its citizens cannot be questioned, it is essential, and Israel is fully entitled to defend itself.

We support the UN and Egyptian mediating efforts and hope that they will shortly put an end to the violence resulting in victims on both sides to the conflict. Our sincere condolences go out to the families of the deceased, and we wish a speedy recovery to injured ones.
