UN Middle East envoy deplores latest attacks

UN Middle East envoy deplores latest attacks on Israeli targets

28 November – The United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Terje Roed-Larsen, today deplored a fatal attack in Israel, as well as violence against Israeli targets in Kenya.


Mr. Roed-Larsen issued a statement condemning “in the strongest possible terms” today's violence in Beit She'an, where Palestinian gunmen killed five Israelis and wounded more than 20. The civilians were targeted at a polling station for the Likud party primary elections.


The envoy also repeated his urgent call to Palestinians to renounce all forms of violence, which continue “not only to harm the prospects of a political solution to the conflict, but also legitimate Palestinian national ambitions.”


In addition, Mr. Roed-Larsen voiced outrage at the bombing attack against civilians in Mombasa, Kenya, coupled with the attempt there to down an Israeli airliner.


He conveyed condolences to all of those affected by these violent attacks.
