The United Nations and several countries have condemned it the attack by a Palestinian gunman on the outskirts of Jerusalem near a synagogue in which seven people were killed and more were wounded, and US President Joe Biden offered all help to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The United States strongly condemns the horrific terrorist attack that took place in front of a synagogue in Jerusalem. We are in close contact with our Israeli partners and reaffirm our unwavering commitment to Israel's security, said US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, who is due to travel to the region soon.

US President Joe Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and offered all appropriate means of support, the White House said.

The attack is condemned by the UN, the Emirates, and Great Britain

The attack was also condemned by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who is concerned about the escalation of violence in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory. He called for restraint, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

The United Arab Emirates condemned the attack on the synagogue, state news agency VAM reported, citing a statement from Israel's Foreign Ministry. Seven people died and ten were injured. British Foreign Secretary James Cleverley also condemned the attack.

Attacking worshipers in a synagogue on Holocaust Remembrance Day and during Shabbat is appalling. We stand with our Israeli friends, Cleverley said.
