What is the US saying about Palestine, today? The Dawabsheh family

What is the US saying about Palestine, today? The Dawabsheh family

At the U.S. State Department press briefing on Thursday, spokesperson Mark Toner was asked about the arrests in Israel today, on allegations of arson and murder. According to the Associated Press, the arrests of several “Jewish extremists” are possibly connected to the attacks on the home of the Dawabsheh family in July.

Toner stated that this was an important step to bring forth justice to the Dawabsheh family. Toner also reiterated the U.S.’s condemnation of this incident and similar attacks.


QUESTION: So I noticed that Said’s not here today, but I wanted to bring up something that he regularly brings up. That is the arrest in Israel of the arson – alleged or suspected arsonist in the – who set fire to the Palestinian home. I’m wondering if you have any reaction.

MR TONER: Sure. Thanks for bringing it up. We’ve obviously seen reports of these arrests. This is an important step. But as we’ve said before, it’s absolutely critical that the perpetrators of this attack against the Dawabsheh family are prosecuted and brought to justice. As you know, we’ve already condemned this vicious terrorist attack in the strongest possible terms, and we again convey our profound condolences to the Dawabsheh family.
