Top Arab MK condemns Jerusalem shooting attack as ‘unacceptable’

Ayman Odeh, head of the predominantly Arab Joint List Knesset party, denounces a shooting attack in Jerusalem’s Old City perpetrated by an Arab Israeli man from Haifa.

“We strongly condemn this shooting,” Odeh, of the Hadash faction, says in a statement. “It is unacceptable for an Israeli citizen to use a weapon. The Arab citizens of the state have chosen a just civil and democratic struggle to end the occupation and for peace and equality. We will not accept any other way.”
