This comes in response to hundreds of rockets fired by Hamas toward Israel last night, hitting residential areas. At least 126 people have been killed in Gaza since Monday, while in Israel at least seven have died. The conflict has now also spread to the West Bank, the larger Palestinian territory.

They renewed their demand for the international community to confront aggressive Israeli practices against the Palestinian people.

The foreign ministers highlighted the importance of working to resume peace efforts in a manner that guarantees all legitimate Palestinian rights.
