Defense Minister Yoav Gallant issues a statement condemning today’s attack by settlers on the Palestinian village of Umm Safa.

“This is not our way,” Gallant writes on Twitter.

The tweet comes after security chiefs issued a joint statement denouncing recent settler violence as “nationalist terrorism in the full sense of the term,” language not repeated by Gallant.

Gallant expresses support for IDF troops operating in the West Bank and calls for them “to act to maintain order and prevent acts of uncontrolled violence by residents of the area.”
