Letter on Israeli Citizens Under Fire



    Another reminder: One million Israeli civilians are living under constant rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

    • Since my last letter four days ago, 87 more rockets were fired into Israeli communities.
    • We see the same reality, month after month: as aid flows into Gaza, rockets fly out.
    • The Security Council has not uttered a single syllable about this appalling terrorism.

    Caution: The Security Council’s decision to stay mute could have grave consequences.

    Inaction today could help ignite an escalation of conflict tomorrow.

    I wish to inform you that an identical letter has been sent to H.E. Mr. Li Baodong, President of the Security Council.

    Allow me, Excellency, to renew to you the assurances of my highest consideration.
    Yours truly,
    Ron Prosor
    Permanent Representative
    H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon
    United Nations
