Deaths in Gaza-Israel condemned

Foreign Affairs Minister Tonio Borg has condemned the escalation of violence in Gaza and southern Israel.

“I am greatly shocked by the loss of civilian lives suffered by Palestinians and Israelis. This resurgence of violence is a cause of grave concern to the international community and this loss of life is deeply regrettable,” Dr Borg said in a statement.

He said it was essential that both sides showed maximum restraint and avoided further retaliatory action at this very sensitive juncture.

“The appalling violence against civilians and civilian centres is unacceptable. All mediation efforts directed at ensuring that the violence is brought to an immediate halt should be supported.”
