MFA SPOKESPERSON’S COMMENTS IN RESPONSE TO MEDIA QUERIES ON THE ISRAEL-GAZA BORDER CLASHES
In response to media queries, the MFA Spokesperson said:
“Singapore is deeply concerned about the civilian casualties arising from the latest escalation of violence along the Israel-Gaza border. We urge all sides to exercise restraint and do their utmost to protect civilians while taking urgent steps to de-escalate the situation. All parties have the responsibility to stop the violence and restore calm.
Singaporeans are advised to avoid all travel to the Gaza Strip and Israel’s borders with the Gaza Strip. Non-essential travel to the West Bank, including Bethlehem, Jericho and Ramallah should be avoided.”
