Liberman: Israeli settlements can't be blamed for Jerusalem truck attack

January 8, 2017 18:14

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman charged that Sunday's truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem was not fueled by the issue of Israeli settlements, rather by the mere fact that "we are Jews and we live here in Israel."

"There was no other reason and no need to look for an excuse - not Jewish settlements and negotiations but an attack inspired by ISIS," he said while visiting the scene of the attack that killed four IDF soldiers and wounded more than a dozen others."We will fight this terrorism with all tools at our disposal and I'm sure that will win," he stressed.
