The United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process has condemned the multiple attacks which took place on Tuesday in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Petah Tiqva and Jerusalem in which at least one person was killed and some 14 others injured.
“There is and can never be any justification for terror,” said Nickolay Mladenov in a statement. “It is deplorable that some choose to glorify such acts that undermine the future of both Palestinians and Israelis.”
He added that his thoughts are with the families and friends of all victims, while hoping for a full and speedy recovery of the wounded.
“Political, religious and community leaders on all sides must live up to their responsibility to stand firmly against violence and incitement,” Mr. Mladenov stressed. “They must urgently take the necessary steps to rebuild hope and show that a political horizon for a negotiated two-State solution is still possible.”
