US ‘strongly condemns’ terror attack in Tel Aviv, stands with Israel

The United States “strongly condemns” the terror attack in Tel Aviv on Friday evening, says State Department Principal Deputy Spokesperson Vedant Patel in a statement.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the victims’ families and loved ones, and wish a full recovery to the injured,” says Patel, noting that the attack in Tel Aviv, in which an Italian tourist was killed and seven others were wounded, followed a shooting attack in the West Bank that killed two Israeli sisters, and critically hurt their mother, all British nationals.

“The targeting of innocent civilians of any nationality is unconscionable. The United States stands with the government and people of Israel. We are in close contact with our Israeli partners and reaffirm our enduring commitment to their security,” says Patel.
