Statement by the Heinrich Böll Foundation on the Hamas attack on Israel

We condemn the brutal and atrocious terrorist attack by Hamas on Israel in the strongest possible terms. Our full solidarity now goes to Israel, which has every right to defend itself against terror.

Hamas will once again generate massive damage to the Palestinain cause for peace and independence.

The task now is to push back this attack and to protect civilians everywhere in Israel and the Palestinian territories. We are in great concern for our employees on the ground and are doing everything we can to ensure their safety.
