UZH is appalled at the horrific terrorist attacks by Hamas against Israel and condemns the attacks in the strongest possible terms. Our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones as well as with all innocent people suffering from the attack, regardless of their nationality or background.
The recent developments in the Middle East are extremely worrying, and we call on all parties involved to respect international humanitarian law and in particular their duty to spare civilians.
UZH condemns all forms of violence aimed at achieving political or societal goals. We explicitly distance ourselves from any groups or people who endorse xenophobia and hatred. As a university, we champion open dialogue and stand for diversity, tolerance and a peaceful coexistence of all people.
