Statement from PM Netanyahu following the attacks: “My wife Sarah and I send our condolences from the bottom of our hearts to the families of those murdered in the attack in Jerusalem. We all pray for the peace of the wounded.

The quick reaction of two fighters and a civilian who eliminated the terrorists prevented an even more serious attack. I salute them.

All Hamas terrorists are mortal – in Jerusalem, Gaza, Judea and Samaria – everywhere.

I appreciate the fact that both fighters and the civilian acted quickly on the ground. The government headed by me will continue expanding the distribution of weapons to citizens. This is a measure that proves itself time and time again in the war against murderous terrorism.”
