Moscow condemned Israel's use of military force against civilians in Gaza، Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a press conference on Wednesday.
Zakharova stressed her country's firm position on the issue of Jerusalem.
Her country was deeply concerned at the escalation in the Gaza Strip، calling on all parties to avoid steps that would fuel tension.
"We affirm the right of Palestinians to protest peacefully and condemn the use of military force against civilians،” she said.
Noteworthy، United States opened its embassy in Jerusalem on Monday، amid Palestinian condemnation، coinciding with the Israeli army's massacre in the Gaza Strip against peaceful demonstrators، which killed 62 people and wounded 3188 others.
