The UN envoy for Middle East peace condemns today’s deadly stabbing and ramming attack in the northern West Bank.

Tor Wennesland says he’s “horrified” that a Palestinian terrorist killed three Israelis and wounded several others, while expressing his condolences to the families of the victims.

“There can be no justification for acts of violence against civilians, which must be unequivocally condemned by all,” he writes on Twitter.
