ZURICH: The United Nations’ High Commissioner for Human Rights has called for an immediate halt to violence in Gaza after Palestinian group Hamas launched its biggest attack on Israel in years.

Volker Tuerk said he was shocked by reports that hundreds of rockets had been fired towards Israel on Saturday and reports that Israeli civilians have been taken hostage.

At least 22 Israelis have been killed in the attack and more than 250 wounded, Israel’s ambulance service said, with the figures expected to rise.

“This attack is having a horrific impact on Israeli civilians,” Tuerk said in a statement. “Civilians must never be the target of attack.”

He called on Israel to take precautions to avoid civilian casualties as it responded to the attacks with air strikes into Gaza.

“I call for an immediate stop to the violence, and appeal to all sides and key countries in the region to de-escalate to avoid further bloodshed,” Tuerk said.

IT WILL BE A LONG WAR ! PURPOSE OF HOSTAGES REFLECTS THAT ! THE CALL IS ON THE GROUND INVASION BY IDF ! HAMAS WOULD HAVE LAID TRAPS ACROSS EACH INCH OF GAZA ! MOSSAD HAD NO INT ON THE HAMAS ATTACK,SO WILL THEY MOVE INTO GAZA ! THEN THERE IS HEZB AND IRAN ! HAMAS HAS THE UPPER HAND - SO THERE IS NO NEED TO STOP ! IDF WILL USE THIS AS A PRETEXT TO ATTACK IRAN - WHICH IS VERY NEAR THE HEU THRESHHOLD ! ALL THAT REMAINS IS FOR HAIFA TO BE HIT ! THAT WILL MAKE IT ISRAEL'S 9/11 AND PEARL HARBOUR ! IDF KNOWS THAT THE PAST INCURSIONS IN GAZA ARE HISTORY ! HAMAS IS NOW A COMPLETELY NEW CEREATURE ! IT HAS EVOLVED ! SAMIR SARDANA
