Opening the Knesset’s Wednesday session with an acknowledgment of this morning’s Jerusalem terror attacks, Knesset Speaker Mickey Levy sends condolences to the victims and says Israel will find the perpetrators.

“We will continue the long-standing fight against murderous terrorism that harms innocents and we will pursue terrorists wherever and whenever necessary,” Levy says from the Knesset’s presiding podium. “I have no doubt that the security forces will lay their hands on every wrongdoer who had a hand in it.”

Before joining political life, Levy was a senior police official who commanded the Jerusalem District during the Second Intifada.

“I wish to send strength to the residents of Jerusalem, whose resilience I know well, and hope that peace and routine will soon return to the city streets,” he adds.
