He said: “We regret the lost life in Gaza, as we regret any loss of life. We must remember that recent events are a direct continuation of the wave of violence organised by Hamas, a murderous terror organisation whose stated aim is the destruction of the State of Israel.

The purpose of these riots is one; storming the security fence between Gaza and Israel to attack Israeli civilians. Israel, like any other country, cannot allow this to happen.”
