WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the coordinated terror attacks near the Israel-Egypt border. Hoyer recently returned from a trip to Israel with 25 House Democrats:

“I want to express my deepest condolences to the families of those lost today in the vicious terror attacks in Southern Israel. Today’s coordinated attacks are a stark reminder of the danger Israelis face on a daily basis. America stands by Israel in the wake of these attacks, and we must do all we can to prevent such attacks from happening again.”
