British Foreign Secretary William Hague on Thursday denounced the barrage of rockets fired by Palestinian terror factions into Israel, saying "I utterly condemn rocket attacks from Gaza into southern Israel by Hamas and other armed groups."

"Hamas bears principal responsibility for the current crisis," Hague continued, adding that the rocket fire "creates an intolerable situation for Israeli civilians in southern Israel, who have the right to live without fear of attack from Gaza."

Hague called terror groups in Gaza immediately to cease attacks against Israel, and called "on those in the region with influence over Hamas to use that influence to bring about an end to the attacks."

Hague concluded by expressing "grave" concern over the situation in Gaza, which he said underlines "the fragility of the situation and the urgent need for progress toward a two state solution which allows Israelis and Palestinians to live alongside each other in peace and security."
