In a meeting with leaders of the Druse community on Wednesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his condolences for the loss of two of their men to terror attacks in Jerusalem earlier this month.

Police Officer Zidan Saif was killed at the attack on Har Nof's synagogue, while Border Police officer Jidan Assad was murdered earlier, in a terror attack at the Jerusalem light rail.

Netanyahu told the Druse leaders, "You are of our own flesh and blood, an organic part of Israeli society. Your brave soldiers and policemen fall defending the State of Israel and all it's citizens. "

He promised to "protect your rights and your security."
