GAZA
I was asked earlier about the overnight firing of rockets from Gaza.

I can say that the Secretary-General deplores last night’s firing of rockets from Gaza towards Tel-Aviv in Israel. The indiscriminate firing of rockets towards populated areas is totally unacceptable, and he calls on all concerned parties to continue their engagement with Egypt and the UN to avoid further escalation that jeopardizes the lives of Israelis and Palestinians, deepens the humanitarian and economic crisis in Gaza, and undermines current efforts to address the critical needs of the population.
