Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the enlightened nations of the world to put pressure on the Palestinian leadership to stop incitement following the murder of 13-year-old Hallal Yaffa Ariel by a Palestinian terrorist in Kiryat Arba on Wednesday.

"The horrifying murder of an innocent child in her bed sheds light on the bloodlust and lack of humanity displayed by the terrorists we are facing, brainwashed by incitement," Netanyahu stated."The entire nation feels deeply the pain of the family and says to the murderers - you will not break us," he said.

Netanyahu vowed to continue to fight terror wherever it may be and called on the world to condemn the attack, just as they condemned the terror attacks in Brussels and Orlando.

"I expect the Palestinian leadership to condemn this cruel murder in a clear and decisive manner, and to act to stop the incitement immediately," Netanyahu said, adding that he expects the international community to join him in this call.

In an apparent reference to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Netanyahu said that the nations of the world must "put pressure on he who stands atop the network of incitement, which leads to the murder of children in their beds, and not on a country that acts to defend its children and citizens."
