Israel is “extremely concerned about the growing trend of violent and murderous acts by Palestinian terrorists that cruelly target innocent Israeli children,” said Israeli Ambassador to UN.
Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, has sent a letter to Virginia Gamba, the U.N. Under-Secretary-General on Children and Armed Conflict, requesting that a report be issued by the U.N. concerning the terrorist attack that took place last Friday near the Samarian community of Dolev, which led to the murder of 17-year-old Rina Shnerb.
In making his request, Danon also called for the inclusion of the stabbing attack in which 19-year-old Dvir Sorek was murdered on August 7 as an act of armed conflict involving children.
“Rina Shnerb had just celebrated her 17th birthday a week prior to the incident. Rina was making her way to a spring, accompanied by her father and her 19-year-old brother, Dvir, when an explosive device that had been hidden in the ground by terrorists detonated, leading to her death. This ruthless attack occurred several days after a 19-year-old yeshiva student [Dvir Sorek] was stabbed to death while making his way home after Torah studies,” Danon wrote.
Danon continued that Israel is “extremely concerned about the growing trend of violent and murderous acts by Palestinian terrorists that cruelly target innocent Israeli children,” adding that these attacks are glorified by the Palestinian Authority and “praised by terrorist organizations, including the Islamic Jihad and Hamas.”
The letter concluded with the ambassador urging the U.N. “to do your utmost to curb such horrific acts of violence, and also ask that you include such incidents in the Secretary-General’s annual report.”
Tell the UN to include the murder of Israeli teens by Arab terrorists as children killed in conflict!
