The day after the shooting, another also took place in Jerusalem, when a 13-year-old Arab terrorist opened fire on a group of Israelis, seriously injuring a father and son.
The Palestinian Authority issued a statement Saturday saying it holds Israel “fully responsible for the dangerous escalation” of violence, while failing to mention the two terror attacks. He also called Palestinian terrorists “martyrs”.
