Paris, February 2, 2012

France strongly condemns the firing of rockets from Gaza into southern Israel on the night of Wednesday to Thursday.

The increased number of these rocket attacks against the civilian populations in recent weeks is unacceptable

France calls for the ceasefire around Gaza to be respected in accordance with UNSCR 1860, as well as for the utmost restraint in order to avoid any risk of escalation./.
