Netanyahu ‘outraged’ over France priest killing

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemns the northern France terror attack Tuesday, in which an elderly priest was murdered in a church by two knife-wielding men.

“I was outraged to hear of the savage murder of an 84-year-old priest, Jacques Hamel, as he knelt by the altar of his church in France. ISIS proved once again that there is no limit to its barbarism. This horrific terror attack will only further unite the civilized world. Together, we will vanquish this evil,” Netanyahu says.
