UNITED NATIONS, January 9. /TASS/. The UN Security Council has strongly condemned Sunday’s terrorist attack in Jerusalem, which killed four people. In a written statement, Security Council members expressed their condolences to the government and people of Israel. They also pointed to the need to bring those responsible for the attack to justice.
UN Security Council members noted that terrorism, in all its forms and manifestations, poses one of the most serious threats to global peace and security and noted the need to combat it using all available means and respecting international law.
According to earlier reports, four people were killed and 13 more were injured in Jerusalem as a truck rammed passersby on January 8. According to The Jerusalem Post, the truck rammed a group of young people who were getting off a bus. Israel’s law enforcers said that the truck driver, a resident of East Jerusalem, was shot dead. The police said it was a terrorist attack. According to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the man has links to the Islamic State terrorist group.
The Russian embassy in Israel said there were no Russian nationals among those killed and injured.
