Canada condemns rocket fire on Israel

The vast majority of rockets were fired by Islamic Jihad`s military wing.

Ottawa: Canada "vigorously condemns" a spate of rocket fire by Gaza militants against Israel, Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon said on Friday.

"Canada vigorously condemns the rocket attacks on Israel launched from the Gaza Strip. These terrorist attacks, which indiscriminately target civilian areas, are abhorrent and criminal. Israel has a right to defend itself against such terrorist acts," he said in a statement.

"Terrorism is never justified. We call on all parties in Gaza to cease these criminal attacks. Those responsible should be brought to justice."
Since the weekend, dozens of rockets have hit southern Israel. The vast majority of them were fired by Islamic Jihad`s military wing, the Al-Quds Brigade.
