His spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Ban was “gravely concerned by the serious deteriorating of the security situation in Mosul, where thousands of civilians have been displaced.” The UN chief “strongly condemns the terrorist attacks” across Iraq that have killed and wounded scores of civilians over the past several days and extends his condolences, he added. “The secretary general urges all political leaders to show national unity against the threats facing Iraq, which can only be addressed on the basis of the constitution and within the democratic political process,” he said.
