Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, on Wednesday evening called on the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council to condemn terrorism in the wake of the terrorist attack in Tel Aviv in which three people were killed and numerous people were injured. 

“Today’s heinous attack sadly proves that when the international community refuses to condemn terror against Israelis, the next attack is only a matter of time. Terror in Tel Aviv must be treated the same as terror in Paris or Istanbul,” Danon said.

“I call on the Security Council and the Secretary General to unequivocally condemn this murderous Palestinian attack.  They must demand that the Palestinian leadership put an immediate end to their hateful rhetoric which incites terrorism,” he added.

Three people were killed and six were wounded in the attack at the Sarona Market. One victim is reportedly in critical condition, while two are in serious condition.

The wounded victims were taken to the Ichilov Hospital for treatment.

Eyewitnesses to the deadly shooting attack told Channel 2 News that the two terrorists responsible “slaughtered people”.

The venue of the attack, the Sarona Market, an old Templar village incorporated into Tel Aviv, is a popular tourist destination.
