Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday responded for the first time to last week's attack by Jewish teens on an Arab youth in Jerusalem, which nearly resulted in his death, strongly condemning the racially-motivated violence.

"In the State of Israel, we are not prepared to tolerate racism, nor are we prepared to accept the combination of racism and violence," Netanyahu stated.

The prime minister referred to the attack as "something we cannot accept, not as Jews and not as Israelis." He added that the perpetrators would be "swiftly brought to justice."
