In the United States, Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton said in a statement Monday that the wave of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis “must stop.”

“I am alarmed by the recent wave of attacks against Israelis, including more than a dozen separate attacks since last Saturday,” the statement from the former US secretary of state read.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. Men and women living in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and elsewhere cannot carry groceries or travel to prayer without looking over their shoulder,” she added.

“It is wrong, and it must stop. There’s no place for violence — only dialogue can produce a lasting peace.”

Clinton is currently leading the Democratic primary race ahead of the first Democratic debate slated to take place in Las Vegas on Tuesday night.

At least 20 stabbings and other terror attacks have left Israelis dead or wounded since the start of the month in what some fear may be the start of a “third intifada.”
