Press release: Foreign Secretary condemns terrorist attacks in Israel and the OPTs

Speaking today Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:


I condemn the appalling terrorist attacks that took place in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories yesterday. An attack in East Jerusalem, when a car was driven into pedestrians killing one person and seriously injuring a number of others was followed by a second attack in Al-Arroub injuring three soldiers. My thoughts are with everyone affected.

I remain deeply concerned by the growing tensions in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including the violent clashes at Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount on Wednesday morning in which a number of Palestinians were injured. Every Israeli and Palestinian has a right to live in peace and security. It is therefore vital that all those with influence now work together to restore calm.

I'm sure the 185 people that died in Syria on the 2nd would find Hammond's focus on one dead Israeli very comforting.
