ZFA Statement on two recent terror attacks in Israel

On Friday when we had already welcomed in Shabbat in Australia, a Palestinian terrorist rammed into a patrol of IDF soldiers killing two soldiers and wounding two others. The soldiers were named as Lieutenant Ziv Daus aged 21 and Sergeant Netanel Kahalani aged 20. The terrorist admitted that his goal was to murder soldiers.

 On Sunday, 32-year-old father of four Adiel Kolman was stabbed to death in the Old City of Jerusalem by a Palestinian terrorist who had been issued a temporary permit to seek work in the Capital.

 President of the Zionist Federation of Australia Dr. Danny Lamm AM called it “a tragedy for the loss of lives, for their families and for the peace that Israel so desperately seeks.”

He continued, “Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority and Hamas have just one target – the destruction of Israel. Nevertheless, Israel will continue to seek the elusive goal of peace for all its citizens”.

 The ZFA expresses their deepest condolences to the families of the three Israelis murdered in these senseless acts of terror.
