UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday evening condemned Palestinian rocket fire against southern Israel from Gaza and called for it to end. He also urged Israel to exercise maximum restraint in its response to the attacks.

“Both sides should do everything to avoid further escalation and must respect their obligations under international humanitarian law to ensure the protection of civilians at all times,” his office said in a statement.

“The secretary-general is greatly concerned by the new wave of violence in Gaza and southern Israel, which has resulted in several Palestinian deaths, including civilians, and wounded people on both sides,” his office said.

A spokesman for the French Foreign Ministry similarly condemned the rocket attacks and called for both sides not to take any action that would escalate the situation.
