Statement by the United Nations Deputy Special Coordinator

for the Middle East Peace Process, Mr. James W. Rawley

on the death of Palestinians in recent security-related incidents in the West Bank

Jerusalem, 11 March 2014




The Deputy Special Coordinator is deeply concerned by reports that three Palestinians died in separate security-related incidents in the West Bank within a 24-hour period, including two shot dead. We urge that thorough investigations be conducted into all such cases, welcoming steps taken to this effect, and that accountability for any violations of international law be ensured. We call on all concerned to demonstrate restraint and work towards de-escalating tensions.

ENDS
