|Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu's Comment on the Israeli Military Operation against Gaza|
Q: It is reported that Israel launched "Operation Autumn Clouds" on the Gaza Strip from November 1, which caused over 200 casualties on the Palestinian side. What's China's comment on that?
A: Recently, Israel launched a military operation against Gaza, causing heavy casualties on the Palestinian civilians, on which China is deeply concerned and worried. It has long been China's stance that the Palestine-Israeli conflicts be solved through peaceful negotiations, and that we oppose any move to aggravate the tension in the region. We call on concerned parties to maintain restraint and avoid further worsening the situation.
