Statement by Robert H. Serry

United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process

On the Situation in Gaza and Southern Israel

23 December 2010

For Immediate Release

“I am distressed that incidents continue in the perimeter area of Gaza, and deplore the killing of one apparently unarmed Palestinian civilian and the injuring of a number of others by Israeli gunfire. I call for maximum Israeli restraint and protection of civilians. I reiterate my appeal for calm and an end to violence, to bring about the de-escalation that all parties have stressed they wish to see.”

ENDS.
