Kulanu MK Michael Oren responded Friday to the terror attack earlier in the day in which a Palestinian toddler was killed and three members of his family injured in a deadly arson attack on their home by suspected far-right extremists, in the village of Duma, in the northern area of the West Bank, outside the city of Nablus.

"The hate crime in Duma was an act of terror," said the former ambassador the United States. "The state of Israel is a country of law and works accordingly against anything that goes against our beliefs."

The people that carried out this horrifying act are damaging Israel in the most critical of ways because they are putting a stain on the nation and therefore hurting our international legitimacy internationally."

Oren sent his condolences to the family and wished the injured family members a quick recovery while calling on security forces to quickly apprehend the suspects in the crime.
