According to recent reports, the clashes killed 61 Palestinians. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas declared three days of mourning.

On Tuesday on air of broadcasting company RTBF, the Ambassador of Israel in Belgium, Simon Frankel stated that she regrets the loss of any human life, «even if they are terrorists, 55 terrorists who came to the fence to try and pass on Israeli territory.» After these remarks, the Israeli Ambassador was summoned to the Belgian foreign Minister to explain his remarks.

«But I cannot accept that dozens of civilians, including children, including infants, who were killed in these incidents that they are terrorists. I think this is a blasphemous statement. The statement is intended to leave an honest, serious conversation, in fact the problems that plague the middle East region, which, in particular, do not allow to implement the decision of the UN General Assembly on the establishment of a Palestinian state,» Lavrov said at a press conference in Moscow.
