US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman condemned on Monday the recent terror attacks in which three Israelis were murdered and slammed the Palestinian Authority for remaining silent.

“Tragedy in Israel. 2 young soldiers, Netanel Kahalani and Ziv Daos, murdered in the North, and father of 4, Adiel Kolman, murdered in Jerusalem, by Palestinian terrorists,” he tweeted. “Such brutality and no condemnation from the PA! I pray for the families and the wounded – so much sadness.”

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin also criticized the Palestinian leadership for not condemning the attacks. “Those who protect terrorism, pay the murderers and encourage incitement are lending a hand in terrorism and becoming an enemy of the State of Israel and the entire free world,” Rivlin stated at The Marker’s 70 Years of Economy conference on Monday.

Kolman, a 32-year-old father of four, was murdered yesterday in Jerusalem when he was on his way home from work. Kahalani and Daos were murdered in a car-ramming attack on Friday afternoon in the West Bank.
