On the current situation in Israel

HZI shares statement by the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany

The Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany expresses its deepest condolences for the victims of the terrorist attacks on Israel. In particular, our sympathy is with our friends and colleagues in the Israeli scientific community. Israel has been and will always be a prime partner for the German research and innovation community.

Our thoughts are with all victims and all those taken hostage, and their families and friends. We are shocked and appalled by the atrocious violence that has been perpetrated by the terrorists and strongly condemn these barbaric acts. They cause unspeakable suffering for all civilians.

We stand in solidarity with Israel.
