Statement by United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process,
Nickolay Mladenov, on the ongoing hunger strike in Israeli jails
Jerusalem, 18 May 2017
With growing tensions on the Palestinian street, I hope that current efforts will result in an immediate resolution to the matter, which is in the interest of peace and ongoing initiatives to revive a political process.
I call on all actors to exercise maximum restraint, show responsibility and take all necessary steps to avoid escalating tensions."
