Peskov called the Palestinian-Israeli conflict a tragedy

BEIJING, Oct. 17 The unfolding tragedy in the Middle East, in including humanitarian ones, are the consequences of a long-term neglectful attitude of a number of countries towards the settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, said Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov.
“We see that the conflict is so old. In fact, the tragedy that is unfolding – and humanitarian – Of course, these are all the consequences of more than one decade of neglect by a number of countries towards the Middle East settlement process,” Peskov told reporters.

On the morning of October 7, Israel was subjected to an unprecedented-scale rocket attack from the Gaza Strip as part of what was announced by the military wing of the Palestinian movement Hamas Operation Al-Aqsa Flood. After this, the organization’s fighters penetrated into the border areas in southern Israel.

In response, the Israel Defense Forces launched Operation Iron Swords against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Within days of the attack, the Israeli military took control of all settlements near the Gaza border and began conducting air strikes on targets, including civilians, in the strip. Israel also announced a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip: the supply of water, food, electricity, medicine, and fuel was suspended.
The number of victims in the Gaza Strip exceeded 2 thousand people, and the death toll of Israeli residents exceeded a thousand; several thousand Israelis and Palestinians were injured. Several dead and missing Russians, as well as citizens of other countries, were reported. More than 150 Israelis are being held captive by Hamas.
The Russian Foreign Ministry called on the parties to stop hostilities. According to the position of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the settlement of the Middle East crisis is possible exclusively on the basis of a “two-state” formula approved by the UN Security Council, which provides for the creation of an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with its capital in East Jerusalem.
The Palestinian-Israeli conflict related to territorial interests of the parties, has been a source of tension and clashes in the region for many decades. A UN decision with the active role of the USSR in 1947 determined the creation of two states – Israel and Palestine, but only the Israeli one was created. Israel, while declaring agreement with the two-state principle, did not completely liberate the Palestinian territories.
