Washington, DC —Rep. Nydia M. VelÃ¡zquez (D-NY-07) released the following statement regarding attacks that took place in Israel on Tuesday:
“Acts of violence like these are an affront to all of us and we must be unified in condemning them. I previously joined my House colleagues in calling on the Palestinian Authority to repudiate attacks like these and take concrete steps to prevent future violence. Today, I repeat that call.
“I am praying for all the victims, including the American citizen who was killed, for their families and that Israel and the region may find peace and healing.”
