French President Francois Hollande condemns the “terrifying” attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem, urging Israel and the Palestinians to resume talks seeking peace.
“Yesterday there was an attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem which was particularly terrifying…and this is unfortunately the trend in terms of what’s happening,” Hollande says in Australia during a state visit.
“So we must be very clear that we condemn these sort of actions. This is something that occurred in a place of worship. We must act to ensure that violence in Jerusalem ceases, and that conditions for resuming talks may finally be such that this dialogue can occur,” he adds.
