The Trump administration’s Middle East peace negotiator, Jason Greenblatt, condemned Jewish attacks on Palestinian Authority residents 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 residents of Judea and Samaria reportedly threw rocks at Arab vehicles on roads throughout Judea and Samaria on Thursday night and Friday following two shooting attacks on bus stops outside of Israeli towns in Samaria 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 Judea and Samaria calling for the assassination of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
