FNs generalsekretær legger skylden på Israel for angrepene den senere tid. Tirsdag var et svært uheldig tidspunkt å komme med en slik kommentar på. timesofisrael.com

Earlier Tuesday, by contrast, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Israel to carry out a “serious review” on whether its security forces are resorting to excessive force in clashes with Palestinians.

Ban finds “the apparent excessive use of force by Israeli security forces” to be “troubling,” his spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters as violence continued in Jerusalem, Ra’anana and the West Bank.

This “demands serious review as it only serves to exacerbates the situation leading to a vicious cycle of needless bloodshed,” he said.
