(CNN) – Firing missiles at civilians, killing civilians – whether those acts are perpetrated by Hamas or by Israel, they cannot be condoned, says chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat. "I (couldn't) care less if someone is pro-Israel or pro-Palestine. My world is divided between those who are pro-peace, and those who are against peace. What we need is to gather the momentum for a meaningful peace process," Erakat said in an interview with CNN"s "The Lead with Jake Tapper." Nearly 1,900 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza during the conflict, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry. It's unclear how many were militants. The United Nations has estimated that at least 70% of the dead were civilians. "The only way to solve this problem isn't going to be through missiles, or through bombing, or through killings. It's going to be through a meaningful peace process that would need to end this Israeli occupation that began 46 years ago, and is still ongoing in the West Bank, and Gaza, and East Jerusalem," Erakat said.
