The act ”expresses a racist fascist-colonial mentality and unprecedented moral decadence,” it said. ”It also reflects a culture of hatred and extremism, which denies the existence of the Palestinians in their homeland.”

The statement noted that the heinous crime is ”a translation of the racist incitement practiced by the pillars of the Israeli right and the extreme right.”

”This brutal crime is not the first and nor will it be the last in the series of crimes of the occupation and terrorist settler militia members,” it added.
