Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat on Thursday warned Israel against "any irresponsible action" in the Gaza Strip in response to terror attacks that killed seven Israelis and wounded dozens more in the South earlier in the day.

"Israel stands warned of any possible aggressive action or collective punishment measures against the Palestinian population in Gaza," Erekat said in a statement.

Erekat stated that the Palestinian Authority is "against violence in all its forms," however, he added that such attacks should not be used by Israel as "a pretext for aggression."

The PA official called on the international community to ensure calm in the region.
