J’lem mayor offers condolences to Banki family

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat expresses his condolences to the family of Shira Banki, who was killed in the Jerusalem pride parade attack.

“The murder at the pride parade in the streets of Jerusalem is a criminal act, and we won’t let it achieve its objective. We’ll continue to allow complete free expression in the city for everyone, continue to support all the groups and communities in the city and Open House (an LGBT organization). We’ll continue the education to accept the other and tolerance in the education system and won’t be deterred by those who try to prevent this by foul methods,” he said in a statement.
