Following the murder of 19-year-old Israeli Ori Ansbacher, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon called for an urgent meeting with the president of the U.N. Security Council, Anatolio Ndong Mba of Equatorial Guinea.
“Condemn the barbaric murder and act firmly against the Palestinian Authority’s culture of terror,” Danon demanded of the Council following the terrorist attack in Jerusalem in which Ansbacher lost her life.
On Saturday, 29-year-old Palestinian Arafat Irfayia of Hebron was arrested in Ramallah as the primary suspect in the murder. Arafat allegedly found Ansbacher in the Ein Yael nature area outside of Jerusalem, where the teen’s body was found on Thursday with stab wounds.
Irfayia was residing illegally in Israel and reportedly left his home in Hebron on Thursday with a knife, Times of Israel reported.
Responding to the murder, Danon stated, “The Security Council’s silence will not help in the fight against terrorism, and will only allow the waves of hatred to grow unchecked. While this silence continues, the PA maintains its policy of paying salaries for terrorists and educating its youth with incitement, and a 19-year-old girl was brutally murdered in Israel.”
“The Security Council has the responsibility and moral duty to make a clear condemnation of this barbaric murder and to act firmly against the culture of terror in the Palestinian Authority, the very culture that undermines stability in the region and destroys innocent lives,” he added.
