UN Condemns Attack That Leaves Israeli Police Officer Dead

By SOP newswire3

The United Nations envoy on Middle East peace has condemned yesterdays shooting and stabbing attack by Palestinian assailants near Jerusalems Old City that killed an Israeli Border Police Officer and wounded at least four others including civilians.


"My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims, and I wish a speedy recovery to the injured," said the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov in a statement.

Emphasizing that such terrorist acts must be clearly condemned by all, Mr. Mladenov said: "I am appalled that once again some find it appropriate to justify such attacks as `heroic.` They are unacceptable and seek to drag everyone into a new cycle of violence."
