Israel claims that this criminal act was carried out in response to the suicide bombing that occurred today in Netanya, Israel, which resulted in the death of six Israelis in addition to the bomber. This Israeli claim has been made despite the fact that the Palestinian Authority repeated its clear position in this regard in a statement issued after the bombing, condemning it and any attacks against any civilians.
We condemn this most recent Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in the most vigorous terms. We call upon the international community to do the same and to take action to prevent any further Israeli war crimes and atrocities from being perpetrated against the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation.
