Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu harshly condemned the terror attack by Jewish extremists that killed a Palestinian baby and wounded four others in a Molotov cocktail attack in the West Bank village of Duma, close to Nablus.
“I am shocked by this terrible criminal act,” he said.“This is a terror attack. Israel deals harshly with terrorism, no matter who the perpetrators are,” he said.
Netanyahu said he had instructed the security forces to use all the means at its disposal to pursue the killers and bring them to justice.
“The government is united in its opposition to terrible heinous acts, such as this one,” he said.
On behalf of the citizens of Israel, he said, he sent condolences to the family and wished them a speedy recovery.
