Illegal Israeli actions in Occupied East Jerusalem and the rest of the Occupied Palestinian Territory
In its meeting today, February 20, the German cabinet discussed the situation in the Middle East and expressed its concern at the events taking place there. Government spokesman Uwe-Karsten Heye reported that Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer expressed grave concern over the escalation of the conflict, noting that in the end no one will emerge victorious from this cycle of violence. As such, Fischer appealed to the parties involved - the Palestinians and the Israelis - to engage in serious negotiations on a ceasefire.
In an unprecedented upsurge of violence, 30 Palestinians and 12 Israelis have been killed throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip during these past three days. This most recent escalation follows an already significant increase in fatalities in the first part of February, in which approximately 30 Palestinians and 14 Israelis died in Intifada-related incidents.

A Palestinian raid which killed six Israeli soldiers the night before drew the pre-dawn retaliation by Israeli warplanes, warships and helicopter gunships on Palestinian security installations across the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Gaza (dpa) - Israeli combst helicopters and fighter planes blasted the offices of the militant Hamas Islamic movement in the Jebaliya refugee camp in the Gaza Strip early Tuesday afternoon, killing two people and wounding several others, Palestinians said.
