Russia Condemns Missile Attacks on Israel

The Russians speak. From Itar-Tass:

Moscow condemns and categorically rejects rocket attacks against Israeli territory, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s first deputy spokesman, Boris Malakhov, said on Tuesday in connection with soaring tensions over Palestinian territories.
“Of particular concern is the fact that such strikes are targeted against civilians and civilian facilities. There is no argument in support of such actions that can be accepted as well-founded,” he said. “Once again we urge all parties to display restraint and common sense and refrain from yielding to provocations by those who would like to ruin any chance of a political Palestinian-Israeli settlement.”
