Foreign Ministry Statement on the latest escalation between Israel and Gaza

14.11.2019. 17:04

Latvia is concerned about the latest flare-up of violence in southern Israel and the Gaza strip, and condemns the indiscriminate firing of rockets by the Islamic Jihad. This latest escalation has caused suffering to both Israeli and Palestinian civilians. Latvia highly appreciates Egypt’s efforts towards de-escalation of the situation and urges the parties to stick to the ceasefire to ensure the safety of civilian populations.

This is also a stark reminder of the paramount importance of finding a negotiated political solution to the Middle East Peace Process addressing the interests of both sides resulting in a two state solution, based on relevant UN SC resolutions and internationally agreed parameters.
