WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD.), a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement on the terror attack in Jerusalem that killed three Americans and one Briton:
“The senseless targeting of innocent civilians has to be stopped; it is unacceptable under any circumstances. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and injured in the Jerusalem attack, as well as the people of Israel, who have endured far too many of these brutal assaults.
“The United States will continue to fight against such atrocities and bring to justice those who commit such acts. As the strongest of allies and partners in combating terrorism, we reaffirm our support for Israel’s right to defend and protect its people.”
