Senior UN Official Calls on Israel to Show Restraint

Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman of the United Nations called on Israel, Monday evening, to exercise restraint in its search for Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Frenkel, and Gil-Ad Sha'er, abducted on June 12th at the Along Shevut Junction in Judea.

Adressing the UN Security Council, Feltman said Israel should avoid punishing individuals for things they had not personally done. He added he was afraid of an outbreak of the third intifada Arab uprising since the late 1980s.
