Moscow "strongly condemns terror attacks on civilians"

Four Russian nationals were injured in an armed attack in Tel Aviv on March 8, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

"One person was killed and another twelve suffered injuries in an attack by use of cold steel in the Jaffa suburb of Tel Aviv. There were four Russian citizens who suffered injuries of varying degrees amongst the victims," the Russian Foreign Ministry information and press department said on March 9 in its commentary released in connection with a series of terror attacks in Israel.

The Russian Embassy to Israel "has been taking energetic measures to clarify the circumstances of the incident and to provide necessary assistance to the hospitalized Russian citizens," it said.

Moscow "strongly condemns terror attacks on civilians, irrespective of the motivation behind them," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Yevgeny Piskunov, Second Secretary of the Russian Embassy to Israel, told Interfax earlier that severe injuries suffered by one Russian citizen in the terror attack in Tel Aviv had been confirmed and that another two Russians might have been hurt as well.
