Press release on Jerusalem terrorist attack
On January 8, a lorry driver deliberately rammed a group of Israeli soldiers and civilians at a bus stop in Jerusalem, killing four and wounding 17. The attacker, an Arab resident of East Jerusalem, was gunned down.
We resolutely condemn this terrorist attack, regardless of its motives. These manifestations of violence aggravate the already complicated situation in Palestinian-Israeli affairs and undermine the international community’s efforts to promote a sustained Middle East negotiating process.
