J Street Condemns Killing of Israeli Soldiers

September 23rd, 2013

We were shocked and saddened this weekend to learn of the killing of two Israeli soldiers in the West Bank--two tragedies in as many days. We condemn these attacks and urge all parties to join us.

It's important that such acts of violence should not be allowed to derail the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The parties must commit themselves to the negotiations with renewed determination to reach an agreement that will end their conflict and provide the strongest-possible security guarantees to both sides.
