Israel on Thursday lodged an official complaint with the United Nations over rocket fire into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip in the past several days.

Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor complained to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that "the lives of about a million Israelis are paralyzed" by the rocket fire.

Prosor stated that "as long as Israel's southern communities will not know quiet, it will not be quiet in Gaza."

He added that Israel fully cooperates with the UN, allowing civilian material and humanitarian aid into Gaza, "and in exchange weapons continue to flow into the Strip and rockets are fired into Israel."
