During the conversation Fini called the murder "the most terrible and tragic event that has occurred in Itamar" and sent his condolences to the bereaved family and the entire people of Israel.
Rivlin told his colleague: "We know that you are our true friends. We are very worried about what is happening these days in Israel. I appreciate your candid concern and I look forward to hosting you at the earliest opportunity in the Knesset."
