JERUSALEM – World Jewish Congress CEO and Executive Vice President Robert Singer voiced extreme concern on Thursday after two missiles were fired by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.


“The World Jewish Congress and our affiliated communities in more than 100 countries stand with all Israelis tonight who are contending with another round of frightening missile fire emanating from Gaza,” Singer said.


“We hold Hamas responsible for all attacks launched from the territory under its control, and urge the international community to publicly recognize that this offensive came unprovoked and that Israel has the full right to do whatever is required to safeguard the security of its residents and citizens,” Singer said.


“We will continue to monitor the situation closely and express our full solidarity with the people of Israel facing this savage attack against civilians on sovereign territory,” Singer said.
