Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had previously stated that the bloodshed between Israel and Palestine should be stopped immediately and called on the parties to stop hostilities.

The Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which relates to the territorial interests of the parties, has been a source of tension and conflict in the region for decades. In 1947, the UN resolution, which assumed the active role of the USSR, determined the creation of two states (Israel and Palestine), but only the state of Israel was created. While Israel declared that it accepted the two-state principle, it did not completely liberate the Palestinian lands.
