ANKARA, Turkey — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says there is a human tragedy in Gaza and although all problems can't be solved, nations must do their best to end it.

Medvedev spoke Wednesday in Turkey - his second stop in the region after Syria, where he said that Israeli-Arab tensions threaten to draw the Middle East into a new catastrophe, adding Moscow's weight to a diplomatic push to ease antagonism between Israel and Syria.

On the Palestinian conflict, Medvedev said "we are facing a human tragedy in Gaza."

Russia has been building up its influence as a Middle East mediator, pledged its assistance in pushing the region toward peace. Turkey also pursued a similar policy and mediated between Syria and Israel.
