“Shocked and horrified by the despicable attack today in Jerusalem,” Friedman tweeted. “Terrorism must be condemned by all and defeated. We pray for the victims.”

The US Consulate General in Jerusalem, which represents American interests with the Palestinian Authority, calling the attack a “horrific and violent act,” adding that “terrorism is unacceptable. Holy sites must be protected.”
