Israel’s ‘harsh responses’ to Palestinian violence won’t bring peace, Ban says

NEW YORK – “Enough is enough,” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a video message to Israeli and Palestinian people recorded from Bratislava in Slovakia, where he traveled this week to open an exhibition for the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the United Nations.

“I am dismayed, as we all should be, when I see young people, children, picking up weapons and seeking to kill,” he said.

In the video, Ban first addressed Palestinian youth. “I understand your frustration. I know your hopes for peace have been dashed countless times,” he said.
