German Government condemns the murder of an Israeli girl

30.06.2016 - Press release

A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement in Berlin today (30 June) on the murder of an Israeli girl in the West Bank:

Stabbing a 13-year-old girl to death while she slept marks a despicable new low in brutality. No religion, political conflict or personal frustration justifies the deliberate murder of a sleeping child.

All those in positions of responsibility in the region must help to tackle the hatred in people’s minds and to defend the fundamental values of humanity.
