Phnom Penh (ANTARA News) - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has raised the issue of Israeli aggression in Gaza at various meetings during the 21st ASEAN Summit, urging the global community to help end the violence against the Palestinian people.

"President Yudhoyono has called on all parties to help stop the cycle of violence and the mobilization of armed forces in the Gaza Strip," Indonesian Foreign Affairs Minister Marty Natalegawa said on the sidelines of the ASEAN Summit here on Tuesday.

The Malaysian delegation also supported Indonesia`s stand, saying it would be difficult for Muslim countries to maintain a moderate stance after the Israeli airstrikes killed many people in the Gaza Strip.

"At a meeting, which was also attended by US President Barack Obama, Yudhoyono stated that the tragedies that took place in 2008 and 2009 in Gaza, wherein thousands of Palestinian people were killed, must not repeat," Marty noted.

"President Obama gave a positive response and promised to push the conflicting parties to make peace," he added.

Meanwhile, Xinhua reported local medical sources and witnesses as saying that three more Palestinians were killed late on Monday night in the ongoing Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, raising the Palestinian death toll since the start of the Israeli attack to 110.

Two children from al-Nasasra family were killed in an airstrike on the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah, while an airstrike on the northern Gaza Strip claimed the life of another Palestian.
