MOSCOW - Russia said on Monday it was "deeply concerned" by an upsurge in confrontation between Israelis and Palestinians on Sunday that Syria said killed 23 demonstrators and wounded 350 others.

"We express deep concern in relation to the new surge of Israeli-Palestinian confrontations. The death and injury of many peaceful demonstrators in the course of these protests is of particular concern," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Israel accused Syria on Monday of orchestrating the lethal confrontations.
