U.S. Consul General Donald Blome’s Remarks on Duma Attack

For Immediate Release

My colleagues at the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem and I express our deepest condolences to the family and victims of last night’s vicious terrorist attack on a home in the West Bank village of Duma. The United States strongly condemns this crime of hate, which killed a Palestinian toddler and critically injured members of his family. We note that authorities have directed security forces to use all means to apprehend the murders and bring them to justice forthwith, and urge that such steps be taken quickly to bring the perpetrators of this horrific attack to justice.
