"I am an Israeli Arab who condemns in the strongest terms the horrific terrorist attack in Tel Aviv, just as I condemn terrorist attacks elsewhere in the world.
"The attack took place in Tel Aviv viciously hit innocent civilians and hurting the good relations between Jewish and Arab citizens of our country!
"I send my condolences to the families of the victims and wish a full and complete recovery to the injured.

"We always act to live together in brotherhood and peace in Israel- we have no other country apart from this country!
