Potential for Armed Confrontation between Israelis and Palestinians Worries Zakharova

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, expressed Moscow’s concern about the development of an escalation between Palestinians and Israelis, which threatens to develop into an armed confrontation.

“What is happening causes the hostility of all world religions. Moscow expresses serious concern about the recent escalation between the Palestinians and Israelis, which threatens to escalate into a large-scale armed confrontation, as has repeatedly happened in the past.

Zakharova said: “The coincidence of religious holidays among Christians, Muslims and Jews increases the tension of the situation.”

Dozens of Palestinians were injured during an Israeli assault on the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, and Israeli police said they arrested 350 Palestinians during the assault on Al-Aqsa.

Jordan and Egypt condemned Israel’s actions, and the Israeli army press office said Israeli fighter jets and tanks attacked Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip at dawn on Wednesday in response to rocket attacks on the Al-Ghalaf area.

The Russian Foreign Ministry, Special Representative of the President of Russia for the Middle East and Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Mikhail Bogdanov and Ambassador of the State of Palestine to Moscow Abd al-Hafiz Nofal said that Moscow emphasizes the importance of taking urgent measures to resolve the situation around the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem as soon as possible and in the Gaza Strip.
