Minister Ellwood statement on shooting attack in Tel Aviv

Minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood appalled by the shooting attack in Sarona Market, Tel Aviv.

Speaking today Mr. Ellwood said:

I am appalled by the senseless attack in central Tel Aviv, which has left four dead and several wounded. My thoughts are with the victims and their families.

There can be absolutely no justification for terrorism anywhere. The UK condemns it in the strongest terms. We will continue to strive for peace in this troubled region and urge others to do the same.
