Joint List chairman Ayman Odeh condemns tonight’s terror attack in Bnei Brak.

“Five civilians were killed today — each a world in their own right. They join the 51 Palestinians killed since the beginning of the year — each one a world in its own right,” Odeh says.

“I strongly oppose any harm to civilians, Palestinians or Israelis alike, along with all harm to innocent people,” he adds.

“It is time to end the source of hatred that is the damned occupation, and to establish peace that will bring security and normal life to both peoples,” he says.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas also condemned the attack, but avoided mentioning the occupation.
