U.S. State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki issued a brief condemnation of the rocket attacks into Israel by Gazan terrorists on Wednesday, March 12.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also condemned the rocket attacks on Israel, but urged restraint on all parties.

In contrast, the U.S. statement noted Israel’s sovereign right to defend itself:

The United States condemns in the strongest terms today’s rocket attacks into Israel by terrorists from the Gaza Strip. It is reprehensible that dozens of rockets have been fired today alone. There is no justification for such attacks. We call for these terrorist attacks to cease immediately. Israel, like any nation, has a right to defend itself.

Ban noted that the terrorist group Islamic Jihad had claimed credit for the attacks.

“The Secretary-General strongly condemns the multiple rocket attacks today on Israel from Gaza, for which Islamic Jihad has claimed responsibility,” Ban’s press office said in a statement issued by his New York office.

“While reports of damage and injuries are still being ascertained, Secretary-General deplores the severe escalation of violence,” it said. “He urges all actors to exercise maximum restraint to prevent further incidents that could bring greater escalation and destabilization in the region.”

  6. Cary Cowell says:

    That’s a surprise . Over here the border patrol now when some one shoots at them they have to retreat , drug dealers come thru just let them go .

  7. Hard to believe since the money to purchase the rockets were probably coming from Obama and his foreign aid policy!

  8. Wayne Wiggins maybe we can strap you to a missile so that you can go visit the other muslims next time we send one back to them!

  9. Condemnation of the attacks in the south of Israel was the least democratic states were bound by ethics state, is clear that the Islamist terrorist are the aggressors and that Israel as a sovereign state has the right to defend its citizens in the time and manner more forceful possible.
    Go IDF!
    G’D bless and protect Israel!

  10. israel should drive the terrorists out of all of gaza and the rest of there god given land once and for all . just like the torah says. the god of israel is god who created all things. he tells us plainly that the jewish people are the apple of his eye. also they will never leave the land again and israel is forever. amen

  11. Wow! Bet they had to do several retakes if that. They were probably chocking on their words.

  12. wayne wiggins you are blind you need to read the bible gods holy word read the first 5 books of the bible called the torah and see what the god of israel who is god who created all things. he said i will bless those who bless thee and curse those who curse thee . you no the lord is talking about the jewish people israel. wake up and hear the word of the lord. amen

  13. WOW!!!! Finally!… Too little… Too Late in my opinion.

  14. But at the same time condemn Israel to accept all things the Palestinians want or it will not support Israel in international arenas. So in the future they will not condemn again Palestinians lunching missiles in Israel. It is obvious that Israel has the right to defend itself. We do not need this kind of support from Obama gang.

  15. wow! what brought the change? apart form our prayers, i mean

  16. Don Mcglaun says:

    this is the same woman that said on Saturday that the p a didn't necessarily have to recognize Israels right to exist and now she is condemning rocket attacks out of gaza?? does she really want us to believe the attacks are from a totally separate group?? talk about mixed messages and blatant hypocrisy!!!

  17. Alan Kardon says:

    So what will they do about? Probably ask Israel to release more prisoners.

  18. First PM of Canada, than British PM and now the UN and US, it was time, what change?.

  19. At last, UN and US have realized what they entered into! Israel keep focusing on your LORD, all enemies will come kneeling to you one day. PRAISE GOD HE IS ON YOUR SIDE.

  20. Run Guo says:

    When did US and UN understood that, terrorists can show restraint? They should support Israel in completely wipe of all terrorist, once and for all, so peace can come. As long as terrorism is alive, then we can all dream of peace.
