Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday blamed Palestinian incitement for Friday's terror attack in Itamar in which 5 Israelis were stabbed to death.

"A society that allows wild incitement like this, leads to the murder of children," Netanyahu said.

A statement from the Prime Minister's Office added that "Netanyahu stands behind the settlers in this difficult hour...we all know, including those who came to attack us, that the future of the settlements won't be decided through terror."
