A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement on 20 November on yesterday’s attacks in Israel and the West Bank:
The knife attack in Tel Aviv on worshippers at prayer and the deadly shootings in the West Bank are despicable attacks that we condemn in the strongest possible terms. I would like to offer our heartfelt sympathy to the families of the victims. There is no justification for these crimes. Violence and terror must be tackled with all means available under the rule of law.
