Americans for Peace Now (APN) strongly condemns today’s terrorist attack in Jerusalem.
A young Palestinian intentionally rammed a private car at police officers and civilians, leaving six female police officers and a male civilian injured. The attacker was shot, injured, and arrested.
APN condemns the attack. We wish full recovery to those who were injured.
Ongoing violence between Arabs and Jews in Jerusalem is fueled by settlement activity in East Jerusalem, including settlements inside Palestinian neighborhoods, as well as by confrontational actions on the Temple Mount, by Palestinian and incitement and by other provocative actions.
APN again calls on all Jerusalemites -- Jewish and Arab, Israeli and Palestinian -- to stop the violence and to stop provocative activity that may spawn more violence in the holy city and beyond.
