France condemns 'indiscriminate fire' by IDF in Gaza

France on Saturday condemned the "indiscriminate fire" by the IDF that killed nine Palestinians the previous day and called for "greater restraint" in the use of force.


"France reiterates its condemnation of indiscriminate fire by the Israeli army, and light must be shed on these serious events," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Agnès von der Mühll said in a statement.


"France calls on the authorities concerned to exercise the utmost restraint and stresses that the use of force must be proportionate, in accordance with international humanitarian law," ​​added the French spokeswoman.


"Only lifting the restrictions imposed on Gaza, with the necessary security guarantees for Israel, will make it possible to respond to the humanitarian crisis and prevent the escalation of tensions," the Foreign Ministry insisted.
