U.N. Security Council Condemns Truck Ramming

YERUSHALAYIM -

The United Nations Security Council on late Sunday night condemned the truck ramming attack in Yerushalayim that left four Israeli soldiers dead and fifteen wounded.

The statement released by the Council “condemned in the strongest terms the terrorist attack in Yerushalayim on January 8” and extended condolences to the families of the victims and to the government of Israel.

The statement was tweeted Sunday night by Sweden’s Mission to the United Nations. Sweden holds the rotating presidency of the Security Council this month.

“The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security,” the statement said.

The statement said that the council finds any acts of terrorism “criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation.”
