Russia tells Israel, Palestinians to 'rein in extremists' after attack

Moscow: Russia on Tuesday condemned the Palestinian attack on a Jerusalem synagogue as an inhumane crime, warning of a dangerous build-up of tensions and calling for both sides to rein in extremists.

"We decisively and unambiguously condemn this terrorist act," the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement after two Palestinians armed with a gun and a meat cleaver burst into a synagogue and killed four.

"Killing peaceful citizens is an inhumane crime, whatever its motivations," the ministry said.

"... We call on Palestinians and Israelis to take urgent measures to rein in extremists, whose actions threaten to explode the situation entirely," Moscow said.

Russia urged the two sides to "renew the talks process... on the established basis of international law" and to "resolve all the questions on the status of the Palestinian Territories, including finding a mutually acceptable solution to the problem of Jerusalem."
