Russia calls for “maximum restraint” in the Gaza Strip amid escalating violence between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group

“We are observing with profound worry how events are evolving,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova says in a statement, adding that Moscow is calling “on all the parties involved to show maximum restraint.”

“The new escalation was caused by Israeli army firing into the Gaza Strip on August 5, to which Palestinian groups responded by carrying out massive and indiscriminate bombardments on Israeli territory,” she says.
