New Delhi, Mar 3 (UNI) The Congress today strongly condemned Israeli Army action in Gaza Strip resulting in large number of Palestinian civilian casualties, and urged the international community and the United Nations to take all possible measures to restore peace in the region.
''The unwarranted use of excessive force targeting innocent civilians is unacceptable and, therefore, deserves to be strongly condemned,'' AICC Media Committee Chairman M Veerappa Moily said in a statement.
He said the escalation of conflict and violence in occupied Palestinian territory, particularly in Gaza, had further exacerbated hardship and distress of the civilian population.
''AICC strongly urges an immediate end to the use of force and violence by all parties concerned. International community and the UN must take urgent note of the worsening situation in Gaza and take all possible measures for cessation of armed action and restoration of peace in the region,'' the statement said.
