Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on recent terrorist attacks following a shooting in the West Bank community of Ofra:

“Violence will not solve anything in the Middle East—it will only bring more violence for both the Israeli and Palestinian people.

“Since last weekend’s shooting in Ofra, in which seven Israelis were wounded and an infant died after being delivered prematurely, we’ve seen a wave of violence targeting Israeli soldiers and police officers. Two Israeli soldiers were killed in Ofra and two police officers were stabbed in Jerusalem. There have also been two more suspected attacks near Ramallah and Kochav Yaakov.

“The Palestinian Authority must immediately and strongly condemn these acts. These attacks are horrific and must end.”
