Jerusalem – Reminder of the minister’s statement (January 8, 2017)


I have just learned, to my dismay, of the attack in Jerusalem this morning in which a truck was rammed into a crowd.

I utterly condemn this despicable attack.

My thoughts are with the victims’ families, to whom I extend my condolences and to the injured, whom I wish a speedy recovery.

At this painful time, France stands, as always, in solidarity with Israel. It stands alongside it in the fight against terrorism and in order to ensure its security.
