Hometown of suspected attacker condemns stabbing

The town of Hura is condemning a deadly stabbing attack allegedly carried out by local teacher Mohammed Abu al-Qian, and joining others in calling for the incident to not enflame tensions between Israeli Jews and Bedouin.

In a statement, the town council says “attacking innocent civilians is an act of criminal, despicable terrorism,” and sends condolences to families of the victims.

It also calls for “Negev residents, Arabs and Jews alike, to safeguard the neighborly relationships that have thrived between the sides until now.”
