Board of Deputies President condemns rocket attack which wounded seven Israelis

Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to a rocket attack on Israel launched from Gaza today.

She said: “I strongly condemn the rockets fired from Gaza which have wounded at least seven Israelis, among them three children – an infant, a three-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl. These indiscriminate attacks designed to inflict death and injury on civilians are something no country can tolerate. Our commitment to the State of Israel’s right to defend its borders and civilians is resolute.”
