Foreign Minister calls for immediate halt to Israeli and Hamas attacks

Össur Skarphéðinsson, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Iceland, restates his concern about the escalating military conflict in Gaza. He strongly condemns the continued Israeli attacks on Gaza and Hamas rocket attacks on Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

The Minister calls for an immediate halt to attacks on both sides. He stresses that action is needed to avoid Israeli ground attack on Gaza, which is becoming increasingly likely and would have devastating consequences for innocent civilians. The UN Security Council must take the matter up immediately and engage to seek a resolution to the situation.
