"As is" reference - not a United Nations document
The Presidency is shocked by the death of innocent civilians on both sides caused by the violence during the last few days. It renews with urgency its demand that the Kassam attacks be ended immediately and calls upon the Israeli Government to avoid inflicting civilian casualties when retaliating and to exercise proportionality.
The Presidency has noted with concern the arrest of members of the Palestinian Government and the Legislative Council. Such measures are liable to make the dialogue between the two sides, which is so urgently needed, more difficult.
The Presidency calls upon the two sides to do everything in their power which could help calm the situation.
