Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon has urged the world body to condemn the murder of an Israeli teen this week in Judea and Samaria.

In a letter addressed to Poland’s U.N. ambassador Joanna Wronecka, whose country currently holds the rotating presidency of the Security Council, Danon pushed the body to condemn the stabbing to death of Dvir Sorek, 18, a yeshivah student and Israel Defense Forces’ recruit, and stop the payment of salaries to Palestinian terrorists.

“The attack and its glorification are the direct result of the Palestinian leadership’s ongoing policy of educating and incentivizing its youth to kill Jews throughout Israel,” Danon wrote in the letter.

“I call upon the Security Council to condemn this sickening act of terror immediately, unequivocally and in the strongest terms possible. It is the duty of the Council to put an urgent stop to all Palestinian incitement efforts.”

Eighteen-year old Dvir Sorek, who was from the community of Ofra, was studying at a yeshivah in Migdal Oz, south of Jerusalem, while taking part in his military service. He had been on his way back from buying books that he intended to gift to his rabbi.

Islamic Jihad and Hamas have praised the killing an unarmed Israeli soldier who was found stabbed to death in the so-called West Bank on Wednesday morning, describing the attack as “heroic”.
