Tor Wennesland, United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, condemns the deadly terror attack in Elad and blasts Palestinian terror groups for applauding the attack.

“Appalled by this evening’s terror attack in central Israel in which three Israelis were killed, and several others injured. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and I wish a speedy recovery to the wounded,” Wennesland says in a statement.

“It is deplorable that Hamas and others continue to glorify and encourage such attacks, which undermine the possibility of a peaceful future for both Palestinians and Israelis. All must condemn violence and stand up to terror,” he says.
