Canada condemns attack in Jerusalem

The Honourable Stéphane Dion, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today made the following statement:

“Canada strongly condemns today’s horrifying terrorist attack that killed four young Israel Defense Forces soldiers as they were on a cultural tour of Jerusalem. We are deeply saddened by the loss of life and hope for a speedy recovery for those injured.

“Canada also condemns the glorification of terrorist attacks. Such craven efforts to incite violence can never be justified.

“As a partner, friend and ally of Israel, Canada fully supports the right of Israelis to live in peace and security, free from the threat of terrorism and incitement to violence.‎”
