J Street is saddened and appalled by the murder of an Israeli couple today in a drive-by shooting attack in the West Bank. We're grateful that their four children escaped harm, and offer our prayers and thoughts to their grieving friends and family.
The violence erupting throughout the West Bank and Jerusalem has already claimed too many innocent victims and risks further escalation on both sides. We call on all parties to take responsible action to curtail violence and restore calm. If they do not, an already dangerous situation is likely only to escalate.
