United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process,
Mr. Nickolay Mladenov, on a ramming attack in Jerusalem
Jerusalem, 8 January 2017
My thoughts are with the families and friends of all victims.
It is reprehensible that some choose to glorify such acts which undermine the possibility of a peaceful future for both Palestinians and Israelis. There is nothing heroic in such actions.
I urge all to condemn violence and incitement, maintain calm and to do everything they can to avoid further escalation.”
