Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat spoke to the press minutes after the Sunday ramming attack that took the lives of four people and injured an additional 13 in the capital. "To our dismay, there is no limit to the cruelty of the terrorists who are willing to use any means possible to murder Jews and to damage the daily life of Israel's capital."

Barkat went on to send a unifying message to the Israeli public: "Those who incite and fan the flames and those who support terror must pay a heavy price. I call on the residents of Jerusalem and the country at large to be alert and, despite this difficult terror attack, to carry on with your daily routines and do not let terror win."
