Local leadership group in Kafr Qassem condemns Tel Aviv attack

The People’s Committee in Kfar Qassem, a local leadership group, says in a statement that members “strongly condemn the serious attack that took place tonight, send our condolences to the family of the person murdered, and wish a speedy recovery to those injured.”

The attacker in the Tel Aviv car-ramming attack tonight was earlier identified as Yousef Abu Jaber, 45, a resident of Kafr Qassem. He had no known prior security offenses.

“We condemn any harm to innocent lives and call for tolerance from all sides. This is not the way of the residents of Kafr Qassem. The city was and remains a place for living together and pursuing peace,” the group says in its statement.

Shin Bet agents and police officers are at Jaber’s home in the central Arab-majority city on Friday night to question his family members.
