UN chief ap­peals for calm dur­ing visit to Jerusalem

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

UN Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral Ban Ki-moon has called for fast ac­tion to halt the “dan­ger­ous es­ca­la­tion in vi­o­lence” be­tween Is­raelis and Pales­tini­ans.

He told re­porters in Jerusalem it was not too late to avoid a broader cri­sis.

Mr Ban spoke soon af­ter po­lice said a Pales­tinian drove his car into a group of Is­raelis in the oc­cu­pied West Bank, in­jur­ing a soldier and a civil­ian.

Later, a Pales­tinian man was killed dur­ing clashes with Is­raeli troops near the Gaza bor­der fence, medics said.

Eight Is­raelis and more than 40 Pales­tini­ans, in­clud­ing at­tack­ers, have been killed in re­cent weeks.
