PM Netanyahu responded to the statement by a Jordanian minister who condemned Israel for killing a terrorist. The terrorist was a Jordanian citizen who had attacked an Israeli policeman in Jerusalem’s Old City.

Netanyahu said:

It is disheartening to hear the backing given by the Jordanian government spokesman to the terrorist attack today in the Old City of Jerusalem.

A security video clearly shows a Jordanian tourist stabbing an Israeli policeman.

It’s time for Jordan to stop this double game.

Just as Israel condemns terrorist attacks in Jordan, Jordan must condemn attacks in Israel.

Terrorism is terrorism.
