Foreign Minister Per Stig Møller says that Israel's response to attacks from Gaza are disproportionate.
"The new spiral of violence in the Middle East is deeply worrying. The spiral of violence was started by Hamas, prompting a disproportionate response Saturday and Sunday from Israel," Stig Møller says.
"But this development is seriously damaging the peace process and the two-state solution which is precisely what Hamas is trying to do. I therefore call on both parties to stop the violence. Although Israel has the right to defend itself against terrorism and terrorist rockets, civilian losses are unacceptable," the foreign minister continues.
