Israel and Gaza – statement by the Mayor of Waverley, Councillor Penny Rivers
Waverley Borough Council condemns the appalling attacks on Israel by Hamas. Residents across our borough have been shocked and upset by the senseless loss of life. Our thoughts are with the innocent and vulnerable people caught up in these tragic events.
We stand against all aggression and acts of terror, and we ask for calm and understanding at this time. We respect everyone – those of faith and those of none. Local government is based on the fundamental principle that communities are stronger when they support each other.
We stand for justice and peace, shalom, salaam.
