Employees at the Kochav Yam daycare center in Herzliya shared words of joy on social media following the massacre at a Jerusalem synagogue on Friday night, praising the terrorist who carried out the attack.

The employees shared images from the scene of the attack as well as celebrations from the Arab street, adding PLO flags and a finger emoji of the victory sign to their posts.

Frightened parents came across the words of praise for the attack, and turned to the daycare administrators demanding action against the employees. The kindergarten administrators told the parents that the workers would no longer be welcome at the daycare and that they had been summoned for a hearing.

One mother of a child at the daycare wrote to her friends in a private Facebook group: "Hey moms, after the terrorist incident yesterday in Jerusalem, two aides from my son's kindergarten put up a post supporting the attack. The administrators of the kindergarten sent us a message that the aides are summoned to a hearing and will no longer enter the kindergarten."

According to her, "This is a kindergarten complex with lots of children and an unarmed guard at the entrance. Does anyone know if it is possible to request reinforcement in the form of an armed guard at the entrance? At least for the near future."

The municipality stated: "The Herzliya municipality takes the issue seriously and the assistants will be summoned to a hearing. We are working to terminate their employment."
