Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, released the following statement in response to the deadly terrorist shooting that occurred today in Tel Aviv, Israel:

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and all Israelis in the wake of the deadly terrorist shooting in Tel Aviv. The hate and violence that is targeted at innocent Israelis is absolutely tragic. Violent terrorist attacks like this one do nothing but hinder any chance of peace in the Middle East. Israel is a strategic partner and democratic ally of the United States and America should stand strong shoulder to shoulder with Israel in response. As a nation, we must always do everything that we can to stop the violence and work towards a peaceful solution to bring peace to the Middle East. An attack on Israel is an attack on the United States.”
