The French external affairs ministry has called for ending the Gaza Strip "isolation", opening its crossings and allowing entry of electricity and basic materials into the Strip.

Pascale Andreani, the official spokesman of the ministry, said in a press release on Thursday that Israel"s announcement of re-supplying Gaza with fuel was "positive" but added that "isolation" of Gaza should come to an end. She warned that such isolation was leading to "political, economic and security dangers".

France is concerned about the return of "violence" to the Gaza Strip and southern Israel, Andreani said.

She expressed regret over the Israeli incursions that lead to the fall of victims among the civilian population in Gaza.
