Foreign Minister Yair Lapid issues his first response to tonight’s terror attack.
“A very difficult evening. Violent and cruel terrorism harms innocent civilians.”
“My heart goes out to the families receiving the hardest news tonight. I send wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded and wish to strengthen their families,” Lapid says.
“The State of Israel is strong, we will fight terrorism with force and determination. The security forces face tense days ahead of them. I strengthen them and pray that they will return home in peace.”
