The National Jewish Assembly (NJA) strongly condemns the terrorist attack that took place in the town of Huwara in the northern West Bank on February 26, 2023, in which two Israelis, Hillel Menachem and Yigal Ya’acov Yaniv, were murdered by the terrorist who used a car to ram into their vehicle and then shot them at close range. Our hearts go out to the families of the victims and we offer our deepest condolences to them.
The NJA stands in solidarity with the people and government of Israel in the fight against terrorism. This attack highlights the need for greater vigilance and cooperation in the fight against Palestinian terrorism, and we commend the Israeli security forces for their swift response to this heinous act.
The NJA reiterates our unwavering support for Israel’s right to defend itself against terrorism, and we stand with Israel in its efforts to maintain peace and security in the region. The NJA also calls on the international community to join us in condemning this terrorist attack.
The NJA unequivocally condemns the violent response by Israelis who entered Huwara, injuring several Palestinians and destroying property in the town. The NJA is further saddened by news that one Palestinian was also killed during this incident. Indiscriminate retaliatory vigilantism is unjustified and only the Israeli government and security forces, not its civilians, are responsible for handling Israel’s security affairs.
The NJA expresses our solidarity with the people of Israel during this difficult time and assure them of our continued support in the fight against Palestinian terrorism in all its forms.
