Responding to "Nakba Day" protests that included the breach of Israel's border and left several dead, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague on Sunday said: “I am deeply concerned by the violence on Israel’s borders today and saddened by the loss of life. I call on all parties to exercise restraint and ensure that civilian life is protected."

Hague added, "These developments make clearer than ever that a lasting and comprehensive resolution to the conflicts in the region is urgently needed and will only be achieved through negotiation.''
