“As Palestinian Islamic Jihad fires missiles at Israeli civilians, UN envoy expresses ‘deep concern’ over neutralization of top terrorist behind imminent attack on Israelis,” tweeted Erdan.

“Will he also express deep concern about the neutralization of al-Zawahiri?” Erdan adds, referring to the US killing of the Al Qaeda leader earlier this week.

As Palestinian Islamic Jihad is launching missiles at Israeli civilians, the UN envoy expresses “deep concern” over the neutralization of a senior terrorist behind an imminent attack on Israelis. Will he also express deep concern about the neutralization of al-Zawahiri?

Wennesland earlier said he was “deeply concerned by the ongoing escalation between Palestinian militants and Israel, including today’s targeted killing of a Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader in Gaza.”
