(JNS.org) U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman swiftly condemned last Friday’s “despicable” terror attack in Jerusalem, in which three Arab terrorists killed two Israeli Druze police officers near the Temple Mount.


“Shocked and horrified by the despicable attack today in Jerusalem,” Friedman tweeted. “Terrorism must be condemned by all and defeated. We pray for the victims.”

The U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem, which represents American interests with the Palestinian Authority, calling the attack a “horrific and violent act,” adding that “terrorism is unacceptable. Holy sites must be protected.”
