Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began his meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry in New York on Friday.
In a brief statement to the press, the premier expressed condolences to the family of the murdered Israeli settlers in the northern West Bank on Thursday while also mentioning the massacre of nine people at an Oregon college by a gunman.
"Israel and Americans are united in grief," Netanyahu said. "Palestinian terrorists murdered yesterday a young father and mother, leaving four little orphans. The gunman brutally murdered nine innocent Americans."
