Press release 451/2006
8 November, 2006
The Presidency is appalled at the continuing killing of civilians due to the ongoing Israeli operation in Gaza. The Presidency calls on Israel to end its military action in Gaza and on the Palestinians to stop firing rockets onto the Israeli side. The spiral of violence will only have serious consequences for the security and political situation in the region.
The Presidency appeals for calm and restraint on both sides. The Presidency also urges the Palestinians to continue their efforts to form a government of national unity.
