IPF strongly condemns today’s brutal terror attack near the Armon Hanatziv Promenade in Jerusalem. There is never any justification to such attacks, and Israelis have a fundamental right to be safe and secure from terrorist violence designed to do nothing but kill innocents. We mourn the loss of four IDF soldiers and wish a speedy recovery to the 13 wounded. Palestinian terrorism is morally reprehensible and tactically counterproductive, and a Palestinian state will never be established through spilling the blood of Israelis. We call on Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian leadership to speak out against this latest attack, and we urge the Palestinian Authority to do all it can to repudiate terrorism and those who carry it out.
