Federation Deeply Saddened by Terror Attack in Jerusalem

Posted on Sunday Jan 8, 2017 5:48 PM

We are deeply saddened by the brutal terror attack in Jerusalem in which a terrorist drove a truck into a group of young Israeli soldiers, killing four and injuring 16.

We call on the Palestinian Authority leadership to condemn this violence unequivocally. There is never justification for such terror.

We hope and pray for a full and speedy recovery for those injured, and pray for the families of those who lost loved ones – Lt. Yael Yekutiel, Lt. Shir Hajaj, 2nd Lt. Shira Tzur, and 2nd Lt. Erez Orbach. May their memories be a blessing.
