UN MIDDLE EAST ENVOY CONDEMNS BOMBING AT EREZ
- UN Middle East Envoy Terje Roed Larsen this morning condemned the suicide bombing which took place earlier today at the Erez crossing between Israel and Gaza. He extended his condolences to the families of the Israeli victims.
- Larsen said this “terrible terrorist attack” now seems to be a part of a new upsurge in violence. He added that the only way to keep this situation from spinning out of control was for the parties to return to the negotiating table and show progress.
