PM Netanyahu Speaks with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon
(Communicated by Prime Minister’s Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this afternoon (Monday, 28 July 2014), spoke with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said, “The Security Council Presidential Statement (<>) relates to the needs of a murderous terrorist organization that is attacking Israeli civilians and does not address Israel’s security needs, including the demilitarization of the Gaza Strip according to the principle laid down in the interim agreements with the Palestinians. The statement does not refer to attacks on Israeli civilians, or to the fact that Hamas has turned the residents of Gaza into human shields and uses UN facilities to attack Israeli civilians. Israel accepted three UN proposals for humanitarian truces, and Hamas violated them all. Even now they are continuing to fire at Israeli civilians. Israel will continue to deal with the terrorist tunnels, and this is only the first step in the demilitarization. Instead of the funds of the international community serving the construction of terrorist tunnels for perpetrating large-scale attacks against Israeli civilians, the international community needs to act toward the demilitarization of Gaza.”
