MOSCOW, June 9. /TASS/. Russia strongly condemns the criminal act in Israel’s Tel Aviv as any manifestations of terrorism that lead to the sufferings of innocent civilians, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

"There are no and can be no justifications of such terrorist acts that seriously complicate a rather difficult atmosphere in the region and obstruct efforts on achieving a fair and stable settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict," the ministry said in a commentary after the attack in Tel Aviv’s shopping mall on Wednesday.

Two Palestinian gunmen entered the shopping center on Wednesday located close to the Israeli defense ministry, ordered food and then opened fire on the visitors. Four Israelis were killed and more than 10 other people received various wounds. Both attackers have been detained and identified.

Israel’s law enforcers have launched a military operation in the Palestinian village of Yatta, near the West Bank town of Hebron, where the terrorists came from, the ministry said. The Israeli authorities have decided to suspend permissions issued for the Palestinian citizens of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip on occasion of the holy month of Ramadan to visit Israel and the Muslim sites in Jerusalem.
