Envoys of US, France, Germany condemn rocket attack from Gaza

The ambassadors of the United States, France and Germany release separate statements condemning the rocket attack on central Israel from Gaza that hit a house, wounding seven people, including two small children.

US envoy David Friedman says he was “outraged” by the news, lining up with Israel in blaming the Hamas terror group for the launch.

“The German government strongly condemns the rocket attack on the community of Mishmeret in the Sharon region, in which several people, including two toddlers, were injured,” German Ambassador Susan Wasum-Rainer writes in a Hebrew-language tweet. “We wish the wounded a speedy recovery.”

French envoy Helene Le Gal retweets a French Foreign Ministry statement.

“France condemns with the utmost severity this morning’s rocket fire from Gaza, which intentionally targeted populated areas in Israeli territory and caused a number of injuries in the community of Mishmeret,” the ministry says in a French- and Hebrew-language statement.
