Delete records based on view in sql server

Hi all.

I want to delete the records from TABLE_A that are displayed using the select statement below. How can I do this without deleting all the records from TABLE_A?

Thank you in advance!
SELECT     View_1.Control_No
FROM         View_1 LEFT OUTER JOIN
                      View_2 ON View_1.Dist = View_2.Dist AND 
                      View_1.Qty_Sold_Unit = View_2.UOM AND 
                      View_1.Item_No = View_2.ItemNumber
WHERE     (View_2.ItemNumber IS NULL)
