24 December 2014 The United Nations Deputy Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, James Rawley, has said he is deeply concerned by reports of exchange of fire between Palestinian militants and the Israeli Defense Forces in the southern Gaza Strip today.
The clash resulted in casualties on both sides and follows a series of armed incidents since the end of November.
The Deputy Special Coordinator urged all parties to maintain and reinforce the ceasefire of 26 August and refrain from escalating tensions.
