MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was outraged by the latest terrorist act in Israel.
“The recent bloody crime in Jerusalem where people were attacked with an axe during a prayer is egregious," Putin said at a meeting with members of the Russian Security Council.
Two Palestinians from East Jerusalem, armed with knives, axes and pistols, attacked a synagogue in West Jerusalem during a morning prayer on November 18 killing four civilians inside and a police officer. Both assaulters died in a shootout with police soon after.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the terrorist act. He said that any acts of violence against civilians were impermissible and urged the Palestinians and the Israelis to avoid provocative rhetoric, which only inspired extremist elements.
“Regrettably, we ourselves are facing many related problems in this sphere. We know about it,” the president said.
“Life is teaching us new and new lessons, which, it seems, take place far from our borders but we should be aware of them,” Putin noted adding that the Russian authorities knew very well what the situation in the world was like and “understood the dangers of manifestation of this kind of (extremism).
"When we analyze the causes of what happened, we should make timely decisions to save this country from such things,” Putin stressed.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has also condemned the recent synagogue attack in Jerusalem. He said that any acts of violence against civilians were impermissible and urged the Palestinians and the Israelis to avoid provocative rhetoric, which was a source of inspiration for extremist elements.
