White House special envoy Jason Greenblatt paid a shiva visit to the family of Master Sgt. Hadas Malka, the Border Policewoman who was stabbed to death during a terrorist attack in the Old City of Jerusalem Friday night.

Greenblatt wrote on his Twitter account: "Today I paid a shiva call to family of Hadas Malka. She was murdered by terrorists. This violence is intolerable!"

Malka was murdered and four other soldiers were wounded when three terrorists launched simultaneous attacks at Damascus Gate and Zedekiah's Cave. The attackers were all eliminated.

The Hamas and ISIS terrorist organizations both claimed responsibility for the attack.

The US administration issued an official statement concerning Greenblatt's visit. The statement said that Greenblatt "offered condolences on behalf of the Trump Administration."

"Incidents such as this underscore why it is vital to realize President Trump's vision of a Middle East free from the threats of terrorism and extremism,' the statement added.
