The High Commissioner joined UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon and his Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry in calling for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.
“I strongly condemn these attacks, which as well as being abhorrent in themselves, also appear to be aimed at undermining the current round of peace talks,” Pillay said. The High Commissioner also pointed out that the individuals responsible for these attacks “can be held accountable under international criminal law.”
