The World Jewish Congress has strongly condemned the terror barrage being launched against Israel from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and urges the international community to recognise that Israel is under attack.

WJC CEO Robert Singer conveyed this firm condemnation, on behalf of the 100 Jewish communities worldwide represented by the WJC, in a series of diplomatic meetings in Geneva with ambassadors and the presidency of the United Nations Human Rights Council. Following the meetings, Singer said:

“Here in Geneva, at the UN Human Rights Council, more condemnations have been made over the last 12 years against the State of Israel than against all other states in the world combined.

“This morning, dozens of rockets and mortar shells were fired against Israeli communities, including kindergartens, homes, and nature reserves. In parallel, Israel identified a terror tunnel from Gaza, measuring 2 km long and infiltrating Israeli territory by 900 meters. The world must open its eyes and realize that Israel under attack and its civilians are being indiscriminately targeted.

“We urge the international community to hold Hamas fully responsible for inciting this violence, and for providing the systemic infrastructure that enables such terror to continue unhindered.”
