Greece’s Prime Minister says terror attacks on Israel cannot be ignored

·

Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis stated that borders must not be crossed and that terrorism must be met with retaliation, as Israel intensified bombings on the Gaza Strip after Hamas rampaged the country over the past few days.

In a joint statement with his Estonian counterpart, Kaja Kallas, in Athens, Mitsotakis said: “There is no room in the 21st century for more sources of violence, nor excuses for religious and ethnic tensions.”

“We hope that peace will be restored as soon as possible, and we acknowledge the right to self-defence of those who are protecting themselves,” Mitsotakis added.

The terrorist assault in Israel, as well as the horrifying photos of the death and kidnapping of defenceless citizens, have also been condemned by the governments of the European Union and the West.
