NEW YORK – Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Meron Reuben wrote letters to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the Security Council expressing his “grave concern” in the face of a terror attack at a bus stop in Jerusalem Wednesday.

“Clearly intended to harm innocent civilians, this appalling and criminal attack also injured more than 40 people, according to initial reports, leaving three people in critical condition and five people in serious condition,” Reuben wrote, noting that the attack followed a “marked increase” in terror activity deliberately targeting Israeli civilians by Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups. 

Reuben noted that on Wednesday, two Grad-type Katyusha rockets were fired by Palestinian terrorists at Beersheba, with one landing in the middle of a residential area in the city, injuring one man and damaging nearby buildings, including a synagogue.

Also on Wednesday, Reuben wrote, a Katuysha rocket was fired close to Ashdod, as well as eight mortars into Eshkol and Sha’ar Hanegev.
