Israel/attack in Jerusalem – Statement by M. Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development
Paris, 18 April 2016
France utterly condemns this evening’s attack in Jerusalem, which injured several people, some of whom are in a serious condition.
I want to assure the victims, their families and the Israeli people of France’s wholehearted solidarity at this painful time.
In view of the increasing violence, France calls for calm in order to prevent a deadly escalation and strongly emphasizes the urgent need to work for peace./.
