Britain condemns Israeli suicide bombing
font size    

British Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett on Monday condemned the suicide bombing in Israel's southern city of Eilat earlier in the day that killed three people.

"There can be no justification for attacks such as these... Such incidents only serve to escalate further an already tense situation in the region," Beckett said in a statement.

"In addition, we are also gravely concerned by the violence over the weekend in the Occupied Territories. We wish to see the restoration of order by the legally constituted Palestinian security forces," she said.

"Neither despicable acts of terrorism inside Israel nor continued violence between Palestinian groups should be allowed to deflect us from the goal shared by the great majority of Israelis, Palestinians and the international community - of a negotiated, peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," she added.

On Monday morning, a suicide bomber blew himself up at a local bakery in the southern city of Eilat, killing three people.

The Islamic Jihad and the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades linked to Palestinian National Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement claimed responsibility for the attack.

Eilat, some 350 km south of Jerusalem, is bordered by Egypt and Jordan. It is a popular Red Sea resort for Israelis and foreigners. The coastal city has largely been free of violence in the past years.
