The Russian foreign ministry on Wednesday insisted that Israel strictly observe international humanitarian law after its tanks entered the border city of Rafah.

At a briefing, spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Russia sees the incursion as “an additional destabilizing factor” in an area with more than a million civilians, and therefore “we demand strict observance of the provisions of international humanitarian law,” the RIA Novosti state news agency reported.
