SECRETARY-GENERAL EXPRESSES DEEP SHOCK AT ATTACKS
ON ISRAELI BUSES IN GAZA STRIP
The following statement was issued today by the Spokesman for the Secretary-General:
Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali was deeply shocked by the two attacks on Israeli buses in the Gaza Strip yesterday, 9 April, in which several people were killed and dozens wounded, many of them civilians. He strongly condemns these acts, as well as all other acts of violence, which can only serve to undermine the confidence required to sustain the peace process.
The Secretary-General commends the Government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization for continuing their negotiations today, in an effort to implement fully the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements.
