President Shimon Peres on Wednesday evening expressed his condolences to the bereaved family of a woman murdered in the terror attack in Jerusalem earlier in the day.

Peres, speaking at a gathering of Ben Shemen Youth Village Alumni in memory of his wife Sonia Peres, said "Today is one of celebration for Ben Shemen, but it is a difficult one for the State of Israel."

"We are under terror attack in the South as well.  Missiles are fired on innocent civilians in a clear attempt to hurt us and disrupt our lives," the president continued.

"I have confidence in the strength of the IDF and the Security Forces to cut the hand of terror that tries to harm our citizens and to put an end to this criminal activity.  I am proud of the resilience of our citizens who demonstrate determination and courage.  I also send speedy recovery wishes to the injured in Beersheba," said Peres.
