B'Tselen strongly condemns the attack today (23 March) near Jerusalem's central bus station, in which a woman was killed and dozens of persons injured, some of them severely. As yet, no organization has taken responsibility for the act, which was clearly aimed at harming innocent civilians.
The authorities must act to determine the perpetrators of the attack and those who planned it, and prosecute them in accordance with the rules of due process. B'Tselem again calls on all parties to keep civilians out of the hostilities.
