UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Saturday he was concerned about a clash in the Gaza Strip in which two Palestinian civilians and two Zionist soldiers were killed.
“I am very concerned at the escalation of violence and loss of life yesterday in the vicinity of the Gaza border,” Ban told a news conference on the sidelines of an Arab League summit in the Libyan town of Sirte.
“I reiterate my appeals made during my recent visit for maximum restraint and an end to all violence, in particular at this critical time when we are engaged in efforts to revive peace talks.”
Ban was referring to Friday’s Zionist incursion, in which two Zionist soldiers were killed in an exchange of fire with terrorists on the Gaza border. Two Palestinians civilians were killed in the incursion.
