The woman reacted to the shooting of the female terrorist after she attempted to stab a security guard in Afula on Friday morning, saying, "Tomorrow they will shoot us. We will continue the struggle until we are victorious. We can accomplish our goals with rocks."

 

US Reaction

 

The United States issued a formal reaction to the increasing violence on Friday, with a state department spokesman saying they "consider the violence in East Jerusalem to be acts of terrorism."

 

The department's spokesman John Kirby told reporters the United States "condemns in the strongest possible terms violence against both Israeli and Palestinian citizens."

 

"We consider these violent acts that we're talking about specifically here acts of terror ... this terrorism," he said.
