EJC condemns the appalling murder of three Israelis in Elad

(Friday, May 6, 2022) – The European Jewish Congress (EJC) condemns in the strongest possible terms the brutal murder of three Israeli citizens in the town of Elad last night.

This heinous attack was just the latest in a series of terrorist attacks that have claimed the lives of 20 Israelis following the hateful incitement against Jews emanating from the Hamas terrorist organization.

“These brutal murders are a direct result of the murderous incitement against Jews that spews forth from the mouth of Hamas leaders,” Dr Ariel Muzicant, President of the EJC, said. “We call on all international and diplomatic figures to work to isolate and defeat Hamas and its supporters and hope that the international community will support the actions Israel takes to ensure security for its citizens.”

The EJC sends its condolences to the families of those murdered and a speedy and full recovery to those injured in the attack.
