Kerry condemns Palestinian attacks

US Secretary of State John Kerry has condemned Palestinian attacks as “acts of terrorism” a wave of Palestinian attacks targeting Israelis, on a visit to Jerusalem.

“No people anywhere should live with daily violence, with attacks in the streets, with knives, with scissors, cars,” he said, alongside Israel’s PM.

Mr Kerry will later meet the Palestinian president in the West Bank.

Nineteen Israelis and more than 90 Palestinians, many of them assailants, have been killed in weeks of unrest.

The attackers who have been killed have been shot by their victims or security forces. Other Palestinian fatalities have occurred in clashes with troops in the West Bank or in cross-border violence in Gaza.
