More than 200 rockets have been fired into southern Israel in the last month alone. Each of these attacks holds the danger of sparking an escalation of conflict in our already turbulent region.
We call, once again, on the Security Council and all responsible members of the international community to condemn these attacks without any further delay.
Israel holds the Hamas terrorist organization fully responsible for all attacks emanating from Gaza, where it remains in de facto control. Israel has exercised and will continue to exercise its right to self-defence, as appropriate, and will take all necessary measures to protect its citizens.
I should be grateful if you would have the present letter distributed as a document of the Security Council.
