Prosor to UN: Condemn the Rocket Attacks

Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, sent a letter of complaint on Thursday to the Security Council and to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, following the firing of rockets from Gaza into southern Israeli towns.

"As children made ​​their way to the school, returning from the Passover break, two rockets fell near Sderot. Instead of rushing to the classrooms, these children and their families were forced to rush to shelters," wrote Prosor and added, "I urge the Council to vehemently condemn the attack before the situation escalates. It’s time that the Security Council begins to worry about the security of Israeli citizens.”
