Jamaica has been observing, with much concern, the violence that has erupted on the border between Israel and Gaza – the Gaza Strip. We are deeply troubled by the high death toll and the thousands of injured persons, and call for peaceful engagement by both sides.

We express deepest sympathy to those affected by the situation and remain hopeful for the attainment of lasting peace and stability for the peoples of the region, through continued dialogue on outstanding issues.

This development presents another opportunity to reaffirm Jamaica’s position and our belief that the best solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis rests in a negotiated political settlement based on a just and comprehensive agreement that guarantees the security of the State of Israel and provides for a Palestinian State, within internationally recognized borders.
