UNICEF condemns killing of infant in West Bank attack

NEW YORK, 31 July 2015 - “The death of an 18-month old Palestinian baby in an arson attack on his home in the West Bank is a tragedy -- and an outrage.  UNICEF condemns this and all violence against the innocent.  Who could be more innocent than an 18-month old baby?  This demands that the guilty be brought to justice.  And it demands that everyone refrain from such senseless, horrific violence.”
