The United States and other countries this evening (Friday) strongly condemned the massacre in the Jerusalem synagogue, in which at least seven people were murdered, against the background of the fear of further escalation in the region.



In Washington, the White House said that President Joe Biden directed the national security adviser to offer assistance to Israel in dealing with the "heinous terrorist attack".

"A horrifying act of violence in a synagogue in Jerusalem on International Holocaust Remembrance Day," said Tom Neides, the US ambassador to Israel.

"I am shocked and disgusted by this heinous terrorist attack that harmed innocent people, including children. We pray for the safety of all the victims and their loved ones."



Britain's foreign minister, James Calverley, wrote on Twitter that "attacking worshipers in a synagogue on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and during Shabbat, is appalling. We stand by our friends in Israel."

The United Arab Emirates also strongly condemned the attack.



The spokesman for the UN Secretary General said that he is "concerned about the escalation" between Israel and the Palestinians, and calls on the parties to exercise "maximum restraint", after nine Palestinians, most of them terrorists, were killed yesterday in an IDF raid on Jenin.

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan spoke by phone with his Israeli counterpart Tzachi Hanegbi and expressed his condolences to the victims of the attack.

He also emphasized that President Biden sends his support to the Israeli government and the Israeli people.



The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates also expressed condolences to the families of the victims, while condemning the attack.

"We oppose all types of violence and terrorism aimed at undermining security and stability in the region and are against all humanitarian principles," the state said.
