ZFA statement on Elad terrorist attack

After a day and night celebrating Israel’s Independence Day, the Australian Jewish community woke to the terrible news that three more Israelis were murdered, this time by axe-wielding terrorists in Elad.

ZFA President Jeremy Leibler said, “Our hearts go out to the families of the victims, to the children now made fatherless.”

Mr Leibler continued, “The scenes of Palestinians celebrating the murder of innocents is heartbreaking and outrageous. For the sake of peace, this barbaric practice of calling for bloodshed and then glorying in its aftermath must be condemned by all countries and leaders.”
