Britain Urges Israeli, Palestinian Restraint as Violence Worsens

December 10, 2011

Dec. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Israelis and Palestinians must show restraint, the U.K. Foreign Office said, as Israel carried out airstrikes on Gaza and Palestinian groups launched rocket attacks on Israel.

“We are concerned by the escalation in violence over recent days, and reports of civilian casualties,” the Foreign Office said in an e-mailed statement, condemning actions that hurt or kill civilians and calling on all sides “to show restraint.”
