President Isaac Herzog denounces the assault on US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband by a man who has spread conspiracy theories about Jews and the 2020 American elections, leaving him with a fractured skull.

“Shocked by the vicious attack on Paul Pelosi and relieved that my friend Speaker Pelosi, who welcomed me so kindly this week, is safe,” Herzog says in a statement.

He adds: “Attacks on elected officials and their families are attacks on democracy itself. On behalf of the people of Israel, praying for Paul’s recovery.״
