Israeli Envoy Calls on UN to Condemn ‘Evil’ Jerusalem Truck-Ramming, Blames Deadly Attack on Palestinian Incitement
The truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem in which four Israeli soldiers were killed on Sunday was “evil and cruelty incarnate,” the Jewish state’s UN envoy said.
“This murderous attack is a direct result of murderous Palestinian incitement,” Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon stated. “I call on the secretary-general and the Security Council to condemn this terror attack immediately.”
“The fanatical terrorism that struck in Berlin and Nice did not discriminate in its victims, and neither did the attack in our capital of Jerusalem today,” Danon went on to say.
As reported by The Algemeiner, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that “all signs indicate” that the perpetrator of the attack — a resident of the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber — was an ISIS supporter.
Referring to a similar modus operandi in Europe, Netanyahu said, “We know there is a succession of attacks, and it could well be that there is a connection between those in France and Berlin — and now in Jerusalem.”
“We will overcome this attack as we have overcome others,” the prime minister declared.
