Dharamsala, July 22 (ANI): Tibetan spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, has said that the ongoing crisis in Israel and Gaza is very sad and totally opposite to what their religion promotes. Israeli forces killed 10 Palestinian militants who slipped across the border from Gaza through hidden tunnels on Monday, the military said, as the death toll from the two-week conflict passed 500 amid growing international calls for an end. Non-stop attacks lifted the Palestinian death toll to 496, including almost 100 children, since fighting started on July 08. Israel says 18 of its soldiers have also died along with two civilians. While addressing mediapersons at Kangra domestic airport in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh, Dalai Lama said he did not expect such sort of violence and misbehavior from people who claim to have faith in religious principles.
