Moscow emphatically condemns the new terrorist act perpetrated in northern Jerusalem on October 21st, the statement by spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Alexander Yakovenko says.
The document expresses condolences to the families of the killed people and sympathy with those who were hurt by this inhuman action.
As Yakovenko noted, "violence cannot be justified by lofty motives. It only replenishes the mournful list of innocent victims and threatens to cause a new spiral of confrontation and to thereby do irreparable damage to the interests of the Palestinian people itself, removing the prospect of translation of its national aspirations into reality".
The statement stresses that "the only way to overcome the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is to give up power logic and to resume the negotiating process by the sides with a view to attaining mutually acceptable solutions on the basis of the 'road map' which is now being worked out within the framework of the Four of international mediators".
According to the latest data, the casualties of the explosion in the bus which was going from Qiryat-Shmon town to Tel Aviv number 14. More than forty wounded people were hospitalised.
The Islamic Jihad Palestinian extremist organisation assumed responsibility for the terrorist act.
Nearly every day there is some retired American military General on the news doing an interview about the Ukrainians “taking back” Crimea or “pushing out” the Russians or claiming 1991 borders “must be respected” for the dispute to end
