Kerry denounces ‘outrageous’ attacks on Israeli civilians

US Secretary of State John Kerry is speaking at Indiana University right now and has raised the matter of the recent “tragic, outrageous, attacks on civilians trying to go about business in Israel and West Bank.”

“We strongly condemn the terrorist attacks against innocent civilians,” Kerry says, but urges “that calm be restored as soon as possible.”

“There is absolutely no justification for these reprehensible attacks.”

“We will continue to support Israel’s right to defend its existence.”

Apparently confirming a report published Wednesday in the Israeli press, Kerry says that he expects to travel to the Middle East in the coming days and “we will remain closely engaged to support efforts to stabilize situation.”
