The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday condemned the ongoing Israeli military offensive against the Gaza Strip, which has killed more than 500 Palestinians, the official Emirates News Agency reported.

The Israeli offensive "constituted an unequivocal violation of the international laws that protect civilians and safeguard their rights during war times," a statement by the UAE Cabinet said.

The Cabinet expressed in the statement its solidarity with the Palestinian people and sympathy with families of the victims of the Israeli attacks which killed hundreds of innocent children, women and old people in Gaza.

The Cabinet also voiced its support for the Arab and international efforts aimed at reaching a ceasefire in Gaza and at providing the right climate for boosting the Middle East peace process and for reaching a just and comprehensive peace that brings about security and stability for the region in general and for the Palestinian people in particular.

Israel launched airstrikes in the Gaza Strip on Dec. 27 and a ground operation on Jan. 3. According to Mo'aweya Hassanein, chief of emergency and ambulance services in the Palestinian health ministry, the death toll has hit to 537 killed and 2,600 wounded, 800 of them are in critical conditions.
