Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded Thursday to reports that six people were stabbed at the Jerusalem gay pride parade.
In a phone conversation with Public Security Minister, Gilad Erdan, Netanyahu called the situation "extremely serious."
"Justice will be dealt to whoever was responsible for this act," he said. "In the State of Israel, an individual's freedom of choice is once of the country's most basic values."
"It is up to us to make sure that every man and woman can live in safety at all times in every way that they choose to live. This is how we work and this is how we will continue to do things. I wish a speedy recovery to all those injured."
