Gaza rocket attack

Media release

27 February 2013

Foreign Minister Bob Carr today condemned the February 26 rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel.

“The Australian Government condemns this rocket attack and repeats the call for an end to all such launches from Gaza,” Senator Carr said.

“Such attacks undermine prospects for a resumption of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

“Australia reiterates its call on both sides to resume negotiations towards a two-state solution comprising an independent Palestinian state alongside a secure Israel.”

Three rockets were fired towards Israel from Gaza at around 5.30am (2.30pm AEDT) on February 26. There were no reported deaths or injuries.
