US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro released a statement on Friday condemning the mortar fire which killed a four-year-old boy in the western Negev.

"I've just heard the terrible news that a 4-year-old child was killed by a mortar strike in the south," Shapiro wrote on his Facebook page. "I condemn in the strongest terms this outrageous terrorist attack and offer condolences to the boy's family. Israel has the right and obligation to defend itself, which the United States supports."
