MOSCOW, March 9. /TASS/. Moscow has strongly condemned the terrorist attacks in Israel that claimed the lives of civilians, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website on Wednesday.
"Moscow resolutely condemns the terrorist attacks against civilians, whatever the reasons given for them," the ministry said.
"Among the victims are four Russian citizens who sustained injuries of varying severity," the statement says. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, Russia’s Embassy in Israel is taking vigorous measures to provide necessary assistance to the hospitalized Russian citizens.
A series of attacks on civilians in Israel occurred on March 8 and 9. Two Israelis suffered gunshot wounds at Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. Almost simultaneously another Israeli was stabbed in the city of Petah Tikva near Tel Aviv. On the evening of the same day one person was killed and 12 wounded (among them Russian citizens) in an attack with the use of cold steel arms on the outskirts of Tel Aviv in Jaffa.
"In the course of the terrorist attacks all Palestinian attackers were killed by Israeli law enforcement authorities," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
