May all the security forces be strengthened, operating in all arenas - in the field and in intelligence - to investigate those who perpetrated and assisted in the attack.

The Palestinian side remains the committed party after the withdrawal of Israel and the Americans by way of President Trump's untenable and widely condemned stance which no Palestinian will accept, added Mahmoud.

It was the second attack on Israelis in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank in three days and a sign of rising tensions.
