Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, laid a wreath on Sunday night at the site in Tel Aviv where Italian tourist Alessandro Parini was murdered in a car-ramming attack during Passover.

The Netanyahus were joined by Italian Ambassador to Israel Sergio Barbanti.

Parini, a 35-year-old lawyer from Rome, was killed on April 7 when Arab Israeli terrorist Yousef Abu Jaber, 45, from Kafr Qasim, 12 miles east of Tel Aviv, drove his vehicle into a crowd on a busy seaside promenade in the heart of the coastal city.

Seven other foreigners were injured in the car-ramming attack.

“Deep sorrow and condolences following the death of Alessandro Parini in a terror attack this evening in Tel Aviv,” said Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni after the incident. “Condolences to his family, to the other wounded, and solidarity with the State of Israel for the cowardly attack.”

Parini’s body was flown to Italy last Tuesday.

In response, Netanyahu ordered the mobilization of all Border Police reserve troops and instructed the military to call up additional reservists.

The Israel Defense Forces has deployed soldiers to Tel Aviv to reinforce the police presence there amid a surge in terrorism.
