Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, this evening (Tuesday), paid a condolence call on the Paley family at their home in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot. Two of the family's children – Yaakov,Yisrael 6, and Asher Menachem, 8 – were murdered in a terrorist ramming attack this past Friday and another civilian, newly married 20 year old Alter Shlomo Lederman, was also killed in the attack. The father of the two murdered children, Avraham Noah Paley, remains hospitalized in serious condition and on a resprator at Hadassah-Ein Kerem Hospital.

The mother of the family, Hannah Devorah Paley, described how her two young children were buried, one after the other, to the Prime Minister and his wife, and said that the family feels they are supported by the people of Israel and that their faith is what is sustaining them. The Prime Minister and his wife replied that faith helps one overcome tragedy and added that entire people of Israel embraces them in their sorrow.

When Hannah Devorah showed a picture of the boys, Prime Minister Netanyahu told her: "I would like your permission to put the picture in my office. This tragic story will help me explain to world leaders the difference between the people of Israel and our enemies. While our enemies murdered these two souls, our forces were in Turkey saving lives."

Family members told the Prime Minister and his wife about the condition of the father of the family, who is still sedated and on a respirator in hospital. The family members asked for prayers for Avraham Noah, the son of Yehudit. The Prime Minister and his wife wished him a swift and complete recovery.
