Hoyer Statement on Bombing in Jerusalem

WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after a bombing occurred in Jerusalem:

“My thoughts are with all those injured or killed in today’s bombing in Jerusalem. In the wake of this terrorist act, it is vital to reassert our commitment to the security of our ally Israel, as well as our condemnation of those who attack civilians and those who inspire such attacks by inciting hatred against Israel. As Israelis face cowardly attacks like today’s, as well as an ongoing barrage of rockets from Gaza, Americans must stand united behind Israel’s right to defend itself, and the right of civilians everywhere to live in peace.”
