India, the United States, and several other countries have called for calm and restraint amid escalating tensions and violence between ISRAEL and Palestinian militants.

At the UN Security Council meeting on Tuesday, India expressed deep concern at the clashes and violence in Jerusalem and called on both sides to avoid changing the status-quo on the ground.

India’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador TS Tirumurti stressed the need to immediately resume direct peace talks and commitment to a two-state solution.

US President Joe Biden has also called for de-escalation of the deadly violence that has claimed dozens of lives. He however added that Israel has a right to defend itself if it is attacked by thousands of rockets.

Dozens of people have been killed in clashes and airstrikes since Monday, when the violence broke out, including a 30-year-old Indian woman in Israel who was killed in a rocket attack by Palestinian militants from Gaza.
