Today Sheffield City Council Leaders issued a joint statement on the ongoing situation in Israel and Palestine:

“Sheffield is a global city – a City of Sanctuary – made up of many communities and faiths.  We condemn all acts of terror, the escalating violence and appalling attacks on civilians in Israel.  Terrorism can never be justified.  Our thoughts are with all those affected, including here in the UK.  We call for peace and an end to attacks on innocent men, women and children in Israel and Palestine.”

Cllr Tom Hunt, Leader of the Council, Cllr Shaffaq Mohamed, Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group, Cllr Douglas Johnson, Leader of the Green Group
