We wake up this morning to the awful news that three Israelis have been killed and one injured in a shooting attack at the settlement of Har Adar, outside Jerusalem. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families.
This attack should be condemned by all who seek peace and a political resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. There can be no justification for this violence. Every death in the face of conflict and terror is a tragedy, and we hope that leaders on both sides take the necessary steps to avoid further tragedies and an escalation of violence in the coming days.
