Russia on Monday called for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, as well as an "immediate concerted action by the international community," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

 

"The situation in Gaza, where Israel began a offensive on July 17, dramatically escalated," lamented the Ministry, after a black day in Gaza in which more than 140 Palestinians and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed.

 

"This new dangerous cycle of violence clearly shows the need for a ceasefire," the ministry said. "The magnitude of the losses and the distress experienced by the population require immediate concerted action by the international community."

 

Moscow "reaffirms its support for Egypt's efforts to achieve a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza."
