UN condemns attack against Israel

UN Security Council condemns terrorist attacks aimed at Israel in India and Georgia By The Associated Press

UNITED NATIONS (AP) ' The U.N. Security Council is strongly condemning the terrorist attack aimed at Israel in India and the attempted terrorist attack in Georgia.

The bombing in New Delhi injured the wife of an Israeli diplomat and her driver while an attempted attack the same day in Georgia was thwarted.

The Security Council said late Thursday that "any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable regardless of their motivations, whenever and by whomsoever committed." It reaffirmed the need to combat threats to peace caused by terrorist acts.



Israel's U.N. Ambassador Ron Prosor, who had urged the council to condemn the terrorist acts, welcomed the statement, saying "after seven years of silence, the Council has finally spoken against the terrorism that the Israeli people face every day."
