UN, EU Condemn ‘Indiscriminate’ Gaza Rocket Fire As ‘Unacceptable’

4

Both the United Nations’ Middle East envoy and the European Union’s Ambassador in Israel condemned Gaza militants’ “indiscriminate” firing of nearly 30 rockets at southern Israeli communities on Tuesday morning as “unacceptable.”

“I am deeply concerned by the indiscriminate firing of rockets by Palestinian militants from Gaza towards communities in Southern Israel, at least one of which hit in the immediate vicinity of a kindergarten and could have killed or injured children,” UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov said in a statement following the attacks.

“Such attacks are unacceptable and undermine the serious efforts by the international community to improve the situation in Gaza,” Mladenov added.The UN envoy called on both sides to “exercise restraint, avoid escalation, and prevent incidents that jeopardize the lives of Palestinians and Israelis.”

 

“As kids were preparing for school this morning a barrage of rockets from Gaza fell on southern Israel,” Giaufret tweeted shortly following the attacks.”One landed outside a kindergarten. I know the resilience of communities in southern Israel but indiscriminate attacks are totally unacceptable and to be condemned unreservedly,” European Union’s Ambassador in Israel Emanuele Giaufret said .

  1. “Unacceptable”. Such a gentle and insipid term for absolutely outrageous attacks on innocent people. But for the UN and EU, this is considered a “strong” response!

  2. “UN envoy called on BOTH SIDES”

    So here we go again! Susan Rice/John Kerry all over again. Cory Booker and Kristen Gillibrand must be smiling now.

  3. and what does the UN have to say about the guy who was given a two day vacation from prison in belgium and used his ‘free’ time to murder a couple of people? how long ’til they figure out how to blame that on israel as well?
