Statement by Richard Miron, Spokesperson for the UN Special Coordinator for the
Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry, following the rocket attack on Ashkelon

Jerusalem, 30 July 2010

We condemn the attack on Ashkelon earlier today, in which a rocket struck a residential area. Indiscriminate rocket fire against civilians is completely unacceptable and constitutes a terrorist attack.

We call on the de-facto authorities in Gaza to ensure that these kinds of actions do not occur.

Violent actions must not be allowed to undermine progress in the on-going talks between Israel and the Palestinians. We urge all parties to exercise restraint and abide by the Fourth Geneva Convention and international law.
