PM Netanyahu's Remarks at the Start of the Weekly Cabinet Meeting, 9 October
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning (Sunday, 9 October 2016), at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting, made the following remarks:
"Several minutes ago we in Jerusalem experienced a shooting attack by a terrorist in a vehicle. He attacked several people. We are still clarifying the details and our forces are active on the ground. First, I would like to send wishes for a recovery to the wounded, and to say, as it appears from the reports that we are receiving, that there was very quick and determined action here by Israel Police personnel who pursued the terrorist and eliminated him. Of course, we will update you when we receive additional details.
I would also like to update members of the Cabinet that I intend to have the Nuclear Research Center-Negev renamed after the late Shimon Peres. Shimon Peres worked greatly to establish this important enterprise, an enterprise which is important to the security of Israel for generations, and I think that it would be right and proper to rename the center after him."
