US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, special White House envoy Jason Greenblatt, and Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) paid a condolence call at the home of the Salomon family, following the terror attack in Halamish (Neve Tzuf) which claimed the lives of three members of the family.

After the meeting, Ambassador Friedman took to Twitter, expressing his support for the family in this difficult time, and calling for evil to "be defeated".

"Comforting the Solomon family: Such strength in the face of adversity! May God bless them spare them further sorrow and may evil be defeated."

Last Friday night, a 19-year old Arab terrorist broke into the Salomon family home in Halamish, and stabbed Yosef Salomon, 70, his daughter Haya, 46, and son Elad, 35, to death before he was shot and wounded by an off-duty IDF soldier.

The three victims were laid to rest on Sunday in the Modiin cemetery.

On Tuesday, Rabbi Ari Abramowitz was removed from the Temple Mount and detained by police after he said the traditional “Kaddish” prayer in memory of the slain Salomon family members.
