Statement by the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process,
Mr. Nickolay Mladenov, on the recent security-related incidents in the West Bank,
including East Jerusalem


Jerusalem, 3 July 2015


"I am increasingly concerned by the continued lethal incidents in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem against Israelis and Palestinians. I call for an immediate end to the violence. All sides must exercise restraint, maintain calm and promptly bring the perpetrators of the violence to justice

I condemn today’s fatal shooting by Israel Defense Forces of a 17-year-old Palestinian during an alleged stone-throwing incident.

These tragic incidents, once again, highlight the need for a return to a political process with the goal of establishing two states living side-by-side in peace and security. They are happening at time when the Middle East faces a vicious tide of terror and extremism.”
