Statement attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General - on recent terrorist attacks in Israel

Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General

The Secretary-General condemns the recent terrorist attacks in Israel, which claimed the lives of at least 11 Israeli citizens. Such acts of violence can never be justified and must be condemned by all.

The Secretary-General extends his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a prompt recovery to those injured.

In the spirit of the upcoming religious holy days, the Secretary-General calls for an immediate end to violence, which only serves to undermine the prospects for peace.
