Australia condemns continued violence in the Middle East – Australian Foreign Ministry media release/Non-UN document

Australia condemns continued violence

Media release

3 July 2014

The Australian Government offers its profound condolences to the family and friends of the Palestinian teenager found murdered in East Jerusalem on 2 July.

The senseless killing of innocent children is appalling and I reiterate the Australian Government’s condemnation of all acts of violence against innocent civilians.

The perpetrators of this crime must be held to account.

It is vital that all parties refrain from acts of violence and vengeance that risk further destabilising negotiations for a peaceful two state solution.
