UN Sec. Gen. Condemns Abduction of Israeli Youths

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemned on Sunday the abduction of three Israeli yeshiva (Torah academy) high school students by terrorists.

In a message publicized by the Secretary General himself, he expressed solidarity with the families of the students, and called for their immediate release. That being said, Ban Ki-moon also expressed concern over an insurgence in violence brought on by the loss of human life, including the death of a child living in PA (Palestinian Authority) governed Gaza, as a result of Israeli aerial attacks.
