The death of American Tuvia Yanai Weissman on Thursday underscores the need for all sides to reject violence, the statement said.

Hundreds of mourners gathered Friday morning at Mount Herzl Cemetery in Jerusalem for Weissman’s funeral. The 21-year-old off-duty soldier was murdered in a stabbing attack at a supermarket in the West Bank’s Binyamin region on Thursday.

During the attack Thursday in the eastern Binyamin region industrial area, a pair of Palestinian teenagers went on a stabbing spree in the Rami Levy supermarket, leading to Weissman’s death and the injury of another shopper.
