January 8, 2017 23:17

The White House has condemned "in the strongest terms" the terror attack against Israel earlier in the day, a statement read.

Four soldiers were killed, and 17 wounded, after a flatbed truck driven by a terrorist from east Jerusalem rammed into a group of conscripts adjacent to the Armon Hanatziv promenade in the south of the capital.

"Such cowardly acts can never be justified, and we call on all to send a clear and unequivocal message that terrorism must never be tolerated," the statement continued.

"We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and our hopes for quick and full recovery for those who were wounded."
