“We are deeply saddened by the fact that in Gaza today there were human sacrifices, wrote Neuert in his Twitter. – We urge all who are involved (in the conflict), to take steps to reduce the stress. The international community is developing measures that will improve the lives of Palestinians, and is working on a peace plan. Violence will not help achieve these goals.”
