Israel / Palestinian territories - Attack in Jerusalem (14 July 2017)


France condemns the attack involving automatic weapons carried out on Friday in the Old City of Jerusalem, which killed two Israeli police officers.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ family and friends.

The use of violence in all its forms, is unacceptable and runs counter to the quest for peace. In a context of increasing tensions, notably in the occupied part of Jerusalem, France calls on all parties to refrain from any act or statement that could heighten these tensions.
