A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement in Berlin today (31 July) on the arson attack on homes in the West Bank last night in which a child was killed:
The German Government condemns this inhuman act of terrorism in the strongest possible terms. The brutality with which the families were attacked with incendiary devices in their homes is shocking.
We share the families’ grief over the death of a small child. We welcome the fact that the Israeli Government has unequivocally condemned this attack and given the highest priority to finding the perpetrators.
