Statements by the Spokesperson

The last few days have seen the firing of more than a dozen rockets from Gaza into Southern Israel by Palestinian armed groups. 
The firing of rockets against civilian populations is unacceptable and must stop immediately and unconditionally. The priority should be to work on immediate de-escalation to protect civilian lives. 
Israelis and Palestinians both have the right to live in peace, security and dignity. Only a political solution can put an end to the violence.
