Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, called on the President of the Security Council and the UN "to condemn the terrorist attack in Germany and take action against anti-Semitic terrorism."

According to Ambassador Danon, "The scourge of anti-Semitism is spreading in Europe, but threatens the entire world. The international community must declare war on anti-Semitism and act firmly to end hatred of the Jewish people around the world. Jews should not have to look over their shoulders in fear for their lives during prayer."

Two people were killed when a gunman attempted to break into a synagogue in the German city of Halle on Yom Kippur yesterday.
