January 18, 2016

We condemn in the strongest possible terms the terrorist attacks over the past two days against Israeli civilians. We were appalled and deeply saddened by the death of Dafna Meir, a mother of six, who was attacked on Sunday in her own home. 
We extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends and community. 
Today, a pregnant Israeli woman, Michal Froman, was stabbed in the West Bank. 
We wish her a full and complete recovery. 
These horrific incidents underscore the importance of affirmative steps to restore calm, reduce tensions and bring an immediate end to the violence.
