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.

“We will overcome this attack as we have overcome others,” the prime minister declared.
