Download PDF for this date

The United States today called the attack on the Islamic College in Hebron, in which three persons were killed and at least 30 injured, a “criminal act” and urged Israel to arrest those responsible.

“The United States deplores this criminal act and condemns terrorism from any corner,” State Department spokesman John Hughes said. “We extend our sympathy to the victims and their families. We fervently hope those guilty will be apprehended by the responsible authorities. We urge all in the area to be calm and refrain from further acts of violence.”
