STATEMENT FROM DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY FOR ISRAEL PRESIDENT AND CEO MARK MELLMAN ON THE MURDER OF ISRAELI SOLDIER AND STUDENT DVIR SOREK  

WASHINGTON, DC (August 8, 2019) – Mark Mellman, President and CEO of Democratic Majority for Israel today released the following statement regarding the murder of Israeli soldier and student Dvir Sorek:

“We send our deepest condolences to the family of 19-year-old yeshiva student and soldier, Dvir Sorek, who was brutally murdered in the West Bank today. May his memory be a blessing.

At the same time we are disgusted but not surprised that Hamas and Iranian backed Islamic Jihad celebrated his murder, calling it “heroic.” These senseless terrorist attacks leave families grieving and make it even more difficult to find a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians.”
