PM, Ya’alon visit terror victims in hospital

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon visit the female border police officer who was stabbed at a checkpoint the West Bank early this week, and one of the people who were wounded in the shooting terror attack in which Malachy Moshe Rosenfeld was killed. Both the border police officer and the man are hospitalized in the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.

Netanyahu says: “We just visited the wounded who have shown courage, composure and strength of spirit. We wished them, the defense minister and me, a quick recovery and of course we hurt with Eliezer and Sarah, who have lost their son Malachy – a unique and unusual person. There is no greater pain than the pain of parents who lose a son or a daughter and the hearts of all the citizens of Israel are with them.”

Netanyahu adds that Israel “foiled more than 200 attempts to carry out terror attacks since the beginning of last year, and we will also get to these terrorist murderers. We will extract a heavy price from the terrorists and those who sent them and who support them.”
