Egypt FM warns Israel against attacks on Gaza

CAIRO – Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi on Wednesday urged Israel to exercise restraint and refrain from launching any attacks on Gaza after a bomb attack in Jerusalem killed one person.

Arabi called on Israel “to exercise restraint and warned it against rushing into military operations in Gaza which will only lead to more tension,” his spokeswoman Menha Bakhoum said.

“Israel must not be given a pretext to pursue violence,” Arabi said, while stressing that Egypt’s policy “is firm in its rejection and condemnation of the targeting of civilians.”

One person was killed and more than 30 were wounded when a bomb ripped through a Jerusalem bus on Wednesday, just hours after militants vowed revenge for two deadly Israeli raids on Gaza.

Israeli raids had on Tuesday killed eight Gazans, two of them minors, prompting threats of revenge by the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, to strike ever deeper inside Israel.
