Russia called Sunday for a Mideast cease-fire, urging an end to Palestinians rocket attacks and Israeli incursions into Palestinian territory. "Despite the calls of the international community, a halt to the violence in the Palestinian territories has not been achieved," the ministry said in a statement. It expressed concern about the growing death toll and destruction, but did not specifically accuse Israel of using overwhelming force, as Moscow did during the summer war with Hizbullah guerrillas in Lebanon. The ministry called for "the swiftest cease-fire, including the renunciation of firing on Israeli territory from the Palestinian side and a halt to Israeli incursions in Palestinian territory."
