Various Israeli officials Saturday night asserted criticize of ongoing peace talks with the Palestinians following a shooting incident that left an Israeli girls wounded in the West Bank settlement of Psagot.

"The rise in terrorist attacks requires Israel to stop negotiations," Deputy Transportation Minister Tzipi Hotovely said. "This is a result of the Palestinian Authority's system of incitement and two-faced policy. On the one hand, they say they want peace, and on the other hand they invite against Israel."

According to Hotovely, "nothing has changed since Arafat; there was no partner and there is no partner for peace."

Knesset Finance Committee chairman Nissan Slomiansky (Bayit Yehudi) called the terrorist attack "further proof that continuing negotiations with the Palestinian Authority from a position of weakness brings more terror."

Slomiansky called for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon to form am aggressive policy to stop terror, and wished the injured girl a speedy recovery.

MK Yoni Shetboun (Bayit Yehudi) called for a military operation "to bring back Israel's deterrence" after recent terror attacks.
