German FM condemns ‘despicable terror’ in Israel

Germany’s foreign minister says the situation in the Palestinian territories isn’t sustainable in the long term.

In an op-ed published ahead of a German-Israeli cabinet meeting Tuesday, Frank-Walter Steinmeier condemns the near-daily street attacks by Palestinians that have killed 27 Israelis in the past fice months as “despicable terror.”

In the article for daily Bild, Steinmeier stresses Germany’s view that only serious negotiations aimed at a fair, two-state solution can offer hope of peace for Israel and the Palestinians.
