Egypt warned on Saturday of what it said were “grave consequences” from the recent escalation in tension between Israel and the Palestinians following a series of Israeli aggression against Palestinian villages.
In a statement, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry urged both sides to “exercise maximum restraint and avoid exposing civilians to further risks".
The Ministry warned “of serious repercussions as a result of escalation in violence," which would negatively affect the future of peace talks between the two.
Egypt voiced calls on all parties involved in the peace process discussions to urge Israel to stop the attacks and provocations against the Palestinian people and to abide by the rules of international humanitarian law with regard to the responsibilities of the occupying state.
Moreover, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan called on Israelis and Palestinians to act with restraint and refrain from hostile acts that could exacerbate the situation.
"We call for restraint from all parties," Erdogan said at a congress for his ruling AK Party in Ankara. "They must refrain from aggressive acts," he said.
