Jerusalem - Terrorist attack against a synagogue (27 January 2023)


France condemns in the strongest possible terms the despicable terrorist attack against a synagogue in Jerusalem, leaving at least seven people dead and many injured.

This attack is all the more appalling given that it took place against civilians at worship on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. France stands with the victims of this attack and their families.

In this time of growing tension, we call on all stakeholders to avoid actions that might fuel the cycle of violence.
