Foreign Minister Steinmeier issued the following statement today (13 March) on the rocket attacks on Israel:
We strongly condemn yesterday’s rocket attacks fired at Israel from Gaza. I am pleased that they did not result in any injuries.
The calculations of those responsible for these acts of terrorism, who hope that these attacks will torpedo the difficult and still fragile peace process, must be proved wrong.
The negotiations on peace in the Middle East are in a difficult phase. All sides need to make even greater efforts. We fully support the American efforts in the negotiations with Israel and the Palestinians.
