Prime Minister Netanyahu welcomed Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness to Jerusalem on Thursday for his first-ever visit personally to the country, and the first-ever visit to Israel by a Jamaican prime minister.

Mr. Holness said in a joint news conference that his people live in a zone of peace, and offered his condolences for the truck-ramming attack that killed four Israeli soldiers earlier this week.
