Letter of condolence to the families of the victims of the 8 January terror attack in Jerusalem

To: The families of Lt. Yael Yekeutiel, Lt. Shir Hajaj, 2nd Lt. Erez Orbach and 2nd Lt. Shira Tzur

We the undersigned would like to express our deepest condolences after your terrible loss caused by the terrorist attack on Sunday 8th January 2017 in Jerusalem.

We are horrified that four lives were taken in this way with their whole lives ahead of them. They represented the best of what Israel and the IDF has to offer.

In the last 16 months far too many Israeli families have suffered terrible tragedies at the hands of Palestinian terrorists who have killed 46 people and wounded 649.

We stand shoulder to shoulder in solidarity with the people of Israel in the face of this terrorism.

We will never forget Yael, Shir, Erez and Shira.

May their memories be a blessing.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
