FM Urges Israel to Show Restraint, Stop Collective Punishment Against Palestinians

Foreign Ministry urged on Tuesday 172014 Israel to exercise maximum restraint and stop its collective punishment policy against Palestinians after the bodies of three abducted Israeli teenagers were found near the West Bank city of Hebron.

The ministry called on the Israeli side to give the Palestinian Authority the opportunity to pursue the culprits and bring them to justice.

Egypt warned from the repercussions of any escalations that could cause all hell to break loose.

The ministry said it made intensive regional and international contacts round the clock to protect Palestinians against Israeli reprisals.

Egypt condemned all forms of violent acts that could inflict casualties on both the Palestinian and Israeli sides.
