Violence Against Israel Continues, US “Not Taking Sides”

The hard-to-believe headline: US Not Taking Sides as Violence Surges in Middle East (ABC News). From another story: A pair of Palestinian men boarded a bus in Jerusalem and began shooting and stabbing passengers, while another assailant rammed a car into a bus station before stabbing bystanders, in near-simultaneous attacks Tuesday that escalated a monthlong wave of violence. Three Israelis and one attacker were killed (CBS). Hamas, which controls Gaza, praised the brutal terror attacks on Israeli civilians (CNN).
