​I remain deeply concerned about the deaths and injuries suffered during recent protests in Gaza. I have urged Israel to show restraint, and the Palestinians to ensure that future protests are peaceful. We call on Israel to abide by its obligations under international law and have a regular dialogue with Israel on legal issues relating to the occupation. We press the parties to refrain from actions which make peace more difficult.
