J Street is horrified by today’s murderous attacks by Palestinian terrorists in Tel Aviv and the West Bank. We strongly condemn and are outraged by the killing of five innocent people.
In South Tel Aviv, two Israelis, including a rabbi, were stabbed while leaving a prayer service. In Gush Etzion, three people were killed in a shooting, including an Israeli citizen, a Palestinian civilian and a young American tourist. These appalling attacks on civilians going about their daily lives must stop.
The horrific terrorism in Israel and the occupied territory over the past few months has already claimed many victims and contributed to an atmosphere of fear and despair. As we mourn the victims, our thoughts are with their families and with the wounded survivors.
