Province Condemning Acts of Terror in Middle East, Offering Support to Local Community

The province has issued a statement about people feeling unsafe in their communities due to the war in Israel and the Gaza Strip.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary has increased patrols near worship centres due to global online threats, and the RCMP say they are also monitoring the situation—though they are not aware of any specific threats.

In a joint statement from Premier Andrew Furey, Immigration Minister Gerry Byrne, and Justice and Public Safety Minister John Hogan, they say government condemns violence or hate in any form, and antisemitism and Islamophobia will not be condoned.

Government says the safety of people in the province is of the utmost importance, and they will not tolerate any act that compromises that.

They say they stand with the federal government in condemning acts of terror and are calling on all parties to abide by international law.

Anyone who feels unsafe is asked to contact police, and people experiencing challenges with their mental health are encouraged to visit the Bridge the Gapp website or call 811.
