Netanyahu condemns ‘shocking’ rape of Israeli girl

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemns the rape of a young Israeli girl, allegedly by the Palestinian school cleaner, in a West Bank settlement.

“The shocking rape of a young girl shakes all of our hearts,” says Netanyahu, sending well-wishes to the seven-year-old girl’s family, a day after an indictment was handed down.

He urges law enforcement to seek the toughest penalties possible against “whoever is responsible for this terrible act.”
