Netanyahu offers condolences to father of Israeli student murdered in Australia

Netanyahu this evening spoke with the father of Aya Maasarwe, the Israeli Arab student who was brutally murdered in Australia last week.

A statement from Netanyahu’s office says the prime minister offered condolences to Saeed Maasarwe on behalf of all Israelis. Maasarwe thanked him for his condolences and his support.

Earlier today, thousands of mourners crammed outside the Maasarwe family home in Baqa al-Gharbiyye for Aya’s funeral. Friends and neighbors carried flowers and Arabic signs, reading “Your beautiful soul will not be forgotten.” They huddled and prayed as her family lowered her coffin into the ground.
