Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday demanding that the body condemn rocket attacks against Israel.

"Israel expects the Security Council, the Secretary-General, and the international community to condemn all of these attacks immediately and unequivocally," Prosor wrote.

Noting an increase of rocket fire emanating from the Gaza Strip in recent weeks, Prosor added, "It ois only by chance that these most recent attacks did not cause civilian casualties. With rockets continuing to rain down on our major cities, Israel cannot and will not rely on good luck to defend its citizens."
