Tuesday, 10 January 2017 11:24

Four young Israeli people, Erez Orbach (20 years old), Yael Yakutiel, Shir Hajaj (22 years old) and Shira Tzur (20 years old), were killed and at least fifteen people were injured during a terrorist attack that took place on the main pedestrian street of Jerusalem; following the tragic precedents of Nice, France, and Berlin, Germany, a truck, driven by a Palestinian linked to ISIS, rammed into a crowd of people.
Like any other act of violence, intolerance and fanaticism, the attack in Jerusalem is absolutely reprehensible: particularly in the case of Jerusalem, such acts of violence and terrorism remove the hope of harmonious coexistence and sabotage the peace process in the region.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the deep grief of Greek Jewry for the brutal killing of four innocent young people and shares the great sorrow of their families and of the people of Israel.
