Israel Calls On UN To Condemn Mortar, Rocket Attacks

Written by TPS on May 29, 2018


Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, called on Tuesday for UN Secretary General António Guterres and the Security Council to condemn Hamas for a series of mortar and rocket attacks against Israel throughout the day, including a mortar that hit a nursery school on a kibbutz near the Gaza border.

“Since the early morning, dozens of rockets and mortar shells were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli populations centers as a continuation of Hamas and Islamic Jihad’s terror activities.  These sustained attacks have continued unabated throughout the day,” Ambassador Danon wrote to the Secretary General and members of the Security Council.

“For weeks we have warned that the violent riots along the security fence with Gaza, that included IEDs and the firing of weapons at our security forces, were not spontaneous protests, but rather part of a coordinated violent attack against the State of Israel.  The shells and rockets fired at our citizens leave no doubt to the true intentions of those who incited, encourage, and even paid for those ongoing riots,” he continued.

“In the interest of restoring calm and protecting civilians on both sides of the fence, I request that you strongly condemn Hamas and hold the terrorist organization accountable for these latest attacks,” Danon concluded.
