British Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett on Thursday condemned rocket attacks from Gaza against Israel and also expressed her concern over the continuing violence between Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip. 'I remain deeply worried by the continuing violence between militias in the Gaza Strip. We want to see the latest cease-fire take hold, for the sake of all the people of Gaza. I support President Abbas's efforts to achieve this," said Beckett, adding, "I also deplore rocket attacks from Gaza against Israel, attacks that are bringing suffering to Israeli civilians." Becket expressed her sorrow for the families of civilians killed and injured, on all sides. "I call on all parties to refrain from violence and to restore to the people of Gaza and nearby Israeli communities the security that they need and deserve, she added."
