Britain urges ‘calm and restraint’ in Gaza

Britain urges “calm and restraint” in the Gaza Strip on Monday after violent clashes ahead of the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesman told reporters.

“We are concerned by the reports of violence and loss of life in Gaza. We urge calm and restraint to avoid actions destructive to peace efforts,” the spokesman says, adding that the embassy move was “unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region.”
