Bush Comments On Israeli Attack On Gaza

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
October 8, 2002

Statement by the Press Secretary


The President is deeply concerned by reports of Israeli military actions in Gaza that have resulted in the deaths and wounding of many Palestinian civilians. While the Administration supports Israel's right to self defense, it is critical that Israeli forces make every effort to avoid harm to civilians in exercising that right. The President urges Israel to minimize the risk to civilian populations in areas in which Israeli Defense Forces are operating.
