Knesset speaker cuts US trip short amid terror wave

Knesset Speaker Mickey Levy announces that he is cutting his work trip to the US short after tonight’s terror attack in Bnei Brak.

He will meet tomorrow morning with Congressional leadership before heading back to Israel.

Levy had been scheduled to meet Jewish leaders and UN officials in New York but those meetings have been canceled.

“I follow the reports from Israel with concern and pain. I wish to send heartfelt condolences to the families of the murdered and a speedy recovery to the wounded. There is no doubt that we are in difficult and sensitive days that need to raise the level of alertness and require extreme vigilance from all of us. Let us know quiet days,” he says in a tweet.
