MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the statement, Washington is ready to provide Israel assistance in the investigation.
"Such cowardly acts can never be justified, and we call on all to send a clear and unequivocal message that terrorism must never be tolerated," National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said Sunday in a statement.
The police classified the incident as a terror attack after the footage of the incident showed that the driver had accelerated the truck to hit the people and had attempted to run over the group again.
Following the attack, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that all signs indicate that the driver was a supporter of Daesh jihadist group, banned in many countries, including Russia.
Israeli police said Sunday evening they identified the suspect behind the deadly truck ramming attack in Jerusalem as an Arab resident of the city.
