Joint statement by Ministers Stoev and Zaharieva on the escalating tension in Israel and the Palestinian territories12 May 2021 News
Bulgaria is following closely and with great concern the continuing serious escalation of violence in Israel and the Palestinian territories, which has further increased tensions, especially in and around Jerusalem.
We strongly condemn the ongoing rocket attacks and assaults on the civilian population, which are absolutely unacceptable and must be stopped immediately.
The provocative rocket fire from Gaza terrorizes the Israeli and Arab populations in and around Jerusalem and must be ceased at once. Violence and terror are not a solution!
We deeply regret every single loss of life and express our sincere condolences to the families of the victims, including children. To the injured, we wish a speedy recovery!
We call for immediate de-escalation and call once again on all parties to exercise restraint, responsibility and common sense.
