NEW YORK - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon condemned the killing of Eitam and Na'ama Henkin in the West Bank during his meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday.

“It’s a difficult day for the State of Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israeli reporters in New York in regards to Thursday night’s terror attack where two Israeli parents were killed and four children were orphaned.

“Our hearts are with the children and their family,” he said, “The killers knew they wanted a mother and a father and it was once again proven that the wild Palestinian incitement leads to terrorist acts such as the one we’ve seen tonight.”

Netanyahu said he will be consulting with the IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon regarding steps to be taken in order to catch the killers and increase security to Israeli populations in the West Bank.
