Israeli opposition leader says ‘saddened and shocked’ by violence at US Capitol

Opposition leader Yair Lapid says he is “deeply saddened and shocked” by the violence at the US Capitol after Trump supporters stormed the building.

“My thoughts are with all my friends in Washington tonight. We hope to see order restored and the transition of power completed. America needs to go back to being a role model for democracies across the world,” Lapid, who heads the Yesh Atid party, writes on Twitter.
