Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented on the deadly terror attack in Har Adar Tuesday morning, saying that it should be investigated whether the fact that the terrorist possessed a work permit represents a new type of attack. “If so, we need to prepare accordingly,” he added.

Netanyahu responded to the attack during a meeting with Likud ministers. The Israeli prime minister expressed his condolences to the families of the three Israelis who were murdered and wished the injured Israeli a speedy recovery. “We will demolish the terrorist’s home, seal off the village and revoke the work permits of his family members,” Netanyahu continued.

Lieberman also accused the Palestinian Authority of encouraging terror attacks. “The Palestinian Authority continues to incite to the murder of Jews and praise and applaud the murderers,” he said. “This is the main reason that the inciting atmosphere in the media and on social media leads to terror attacks against the citizens of the State of Israel.”
