The other Israeli riders in the competition fell behind and failed to qualify in the individual jump, but will compete again in the group round later this week.

Britain says UN Security Council ‘must respond to Iran’s destabilizing actions’

United Kingdom Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says that Britain has written to the head of the UN Security Council, along with Romania and Liberia, to insist that action be taken against Iran over a deadly attack on an Israel-linked tanker last week.

“The UK has written to UN Security Council President T S Tirumurti alongside Romania and Liberia to raise Iran’s attack on MV Mercer Street,” Raab tweets.

“The Council must respond to Iran’s destabilizing actions and lack of respect for international law,” Raab says.

Hebrew media reported yesterday that Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid were set to hold a briefing for UN Security Council representatives during which they will present them with intelligence information showing Iran’s responsibility for the attack.
