Mohammed Barakeh, an Israeli Arab member of Israel's parliament, told the Haaretz daily that the residents of Shfaram, where the bus attack occurred, "protected themselves when they realized the murderer wants to kill more people."

And Farej Ahmaisis, a Shfaram city council member, urged Israel to leave the case alone, the AP reports.

On Aug. 4, Eden Natan-Zada, a right-wing extremist distraught over Israeli plans to evacuate the Gaza Strip in the coming days, opened fire on a bus in the northern Israeli Arab town of Shfaram, killing four and wounding more than a dozen before being killed himself by an angry crowd.
