UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland condemns today’s stabbing attack in Beersheba, which left four civilians dead.

“There is no justification for violence or terrorism. There is nothing heroic in the killing of civilians and there is no excuse for praising such acts. It must be condemned by all,” Wennesland says.

“I am increasingly alarmed by the continued violence in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel that is taking place on a daily basis. This is the seventh stabbing attack against Israelis this month.”

“These tragic incidents only highlight the volatility of the situation and the urgent need for all leaders to work together against the spiral of violence,” Wennesland says.
