DEPLORING UPSURGE IN ANTI-SEMITIC ATTACKS, SECRETARY-GENERAL STRESSES MIDDLE EAST

CONFLICT MUST NOT CONSTITUTE PRETEXT FOR PREJUDICE ANYWHERE





The following statement was issued today by the Spokesman for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

The Secretary-General deplores the recent upsurge in anti-Semitic attacks, particularly in Europe, in connection with protests concerning the escalation of violence in Gaza.
