Israel to UN: Condemn Gaza Rocket Fire on Negev

Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, sent a sharply-worded letter, Thursday, to Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon of the United Nations and to the U.N. Security Council, in which he noted that the Security Council condemned Syria last week, within hours of the explosion of a Syrian missile in Turkey. Referring to missile fire on the western Negev by terrorists in Hamas-controlled Gaza, he noted, "Even 37 rockets fired in the last three days could not wake the Security Council from its slumber."

Prosor continued, "The public in Israel expects the Security Council's condemnation against the firing of rockets at Israel like the condemnation of the fire from Syria at a country in our region. Hamas took full responsibility for these terrorist attacks. What additional evidence does the international community need to condemn the organization?"
