Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tonight telephoned the father of the father of the family who was murdered in last night’s terrorist attack in Itamar.  The Prime Minister said:

"One cannot put into words the horror that took place.  This was a cold-blooded slaughter of innocents, children and their parents.  I, along with all Israel, embrace you and your three grand-children who survived.  I promise that we will do our utmost to help you at this awful time.  I intend to monitor this personally and you can turn to me for anything.  I promise you that we will not rest until the murderers are revealed and brought to justice.  May we know no more sorrow."
