BEIJING — China has condemned the fatal IDF raid on a flotilla of Gaza-bound ships in which at least nine people were killed and dozens wounded.

"China is appalled and condemns the Israeli navy's attack on the Turkish fleet shipping humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip," Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said in a statement late Monday.

Beijing's condemnation of the raid contrasts with the cautious position it has taken amid rising tensions between its neighbors. China has expressed no support for proposed UN sanctions against ally North Korea over its alleged sinking of a South Korean warship.

"China urges Israel to abide by the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council in every detail, and improve the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip," Ma said.
