US, EU envoys condemn terror attack in Bnei Brak, Ramat Gan

Ambassadors from the United States and European Union condemned the latest terror attack in Israel, which claimed five lives in Bnei Brak and Ramat Gan.

“Just now hearing reports of another attack in Israel, this time taking the lives of innocent people in Bnei Brak. My heart goes out to the families of the victims. No one should have to endure such heartbreak,” U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides wrote on Twitter.

A 27-year-old from the West Bank village of Ya’bad opened fire on several people in Bnei Brak on Tuesday evening before moving on to nearby Ramat Gan, leaving five people dead in his wake. He was eventually shot dead by security forces.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett plans to hold a security consultation at 10 p.m. with the participation of senior defense and intelligence officers, according to his office.

Dimiter Tzantchev, the European Union’s Ambassador to Israel, called the attack “despicable.”

“My thoughts are with the families of the victims & injured. [The E.U.] unequivocally condemns such senseless violence! We stand shoulder to shoulder with [Israel] in these difficult times. Violent extremism will be defeated,’ he wrote.
