The Trump Administration’s Middle East peace negotiator, Jason Greenblatt, condemned Jewish attacks on West Bank Palestinians following a series of terror attacks.

“The recent Palestinian terrorist attacks against Israelis are unconscionable. But throwing rocks at vehicles who have nothing to do with these attacks is NOT a legitimate response. Innocent people could be killed,” Greenblatt wrote on Twitter on Friday night.

Jewish settlers reportedly threw rocks at Palestinian vehicles on roads throughout the West Bank on Thursday night and Friday following two shooting attacks on bus stops outside of settlements in the West Bank and at least one car ramming attack, as well as a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Hours earlier, Greenblatt in a tweet in Arabic denounced posters in the West Bank calling for the assassination of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
