NEW YORK --- For the fourth time in the past month, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor wrote a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the UN Security Council condemning the continuing rocket fire emanating from the Gaza Strip.

Prosor noted that two long-range rockets were fired Tuesday from Gaza into a kibbutz in Sha’ar Hanegev, one completely destroying a farm building in proximity to a kindergarten classroom. Since October, more than 70 rockets and mortars have been launched at civilian targets in Southern Israel from Gaza.

“Nearly every day, we witness new scenes of destruction. Israeli men, women and children
continue to be killed and injured. Shrapnel flies into homes, schools and playgrounds,” Prosor wrote. Fires rage in the streets. Yet, the Security Council still has not uttered a single syllable of condemnation against these attacks.”
