At the Knesset a bit earlier, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said only security forces should “avenge” yesterday’s deadly terror attack in Huwara, following settler violence in the Palestinian city and attempts to reclaim an illegal outpost.

“God will avenge their blood and we will avenge their blood,” the prime minister told the Knesset floor, specifying that “when I say us, I mean only Israel’s defense forces, the IDF and the security forces. They know how to do this.”

“We are in a continuing fight. Unfortunately there will be more terror attacks,” he added, shortly before news broke on the latest shooting.
