"Nowhere in the world should terror be given a single chance." Zelenskyy reacts to Hamas attacks on Israel
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy reacted to the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel. The head of state said that terror should not be given a single chance anywhere in the world.
Zelenskyy noted that terror is always a crime not just against one country or its specific victims, but against humanity and the whole world. The president said this in his Telegram.
According to the president, the world must be united and in solidarity so that terror never tries to conquer or break lives anywhere. Zelenskyy also said that Israel's right to defense is beyond question.
"All the circumstances of this terrorist attack must be clarified so that the world knows and brings to justice everyone who incited the attack and helped organize it," Zelenskyy said.
The President also addressed the citizens of Ukraine who are in the danger zone. Zelenskyy noted that people should carefully follow the instructions of the security forces on the ground and follow the information.
"Please take care of yourself! The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and our embassy in Israel are ready to help in any situation. An operational headquarters has been set up to assist Ukrainians in Israel. If you need help, please immediately contact any of our diplomatic or consular missions in any way that is available to you," the president wrote.
As a reminder, on the morning of October 7, thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel. Residents of southern and central cities were ordered to stay near shelters and take care of their own safety. In turn, the Israeli army began to carry out air strikes in Palestine.
Earlier it was reported that the commander of the Hamas terrorist movement, Mohammad Deif, called the shelling and infiltration into Israel "the day of the great revolution." He called on Israeli Arabs to take up arms and join the militants.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, in July 2023, Israel conducted a large-scale military operation. It was the largest strike on the Palestinian city of Jenin since 2002. The Israeli army used missiles, as well as helicopters and drones. About 150 armored vehicles were involved in the operation, and about a thousand soldiers from the elite special forces and the army, intelligence, police, and border guard were involved.
