‘Norway condemns yesterday’s brutal terrorist attack in Tel Aviv,’ said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.
At least four people were killed and several others were seriously wounded when two men opened fire on civilians at a restaurant in Tel Aviv on Wednesday evening. According to Israeli police, the gunmen were Palestinians.
‘My thoughts are with the families of the victims and with those who have been injured,’ said Mr Brende.
‘There can be no justification for using violence against innocent civilians. Political leaders must condemn all acts of terror and do their utmost to ensure that the conflict does not now escalate,’ said Mr Brende.
