Press release: Foreign Secretary condemns terrorist attack in Israel

Following a knife attack on a Tel Aviv bus this morning, which left several injured, the Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:

I strongly condemn the terrorist attack on passengers on the bus on Begin Road in Tel Aviv this morning. This was a cowardly and senseless attack. Violent attacks of this nature only undermine the cause of peace.

My thoughts are with all those who were affected in this attack; and I wish those injured a swift recovery.

Every Israeli and Palestinian has a right to live in peace and security. We call on all to ensure calm.
