Wasserman Schultz Statement on Recent Violence in Israel

 U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement after several violent attacks in Israel:

“I am deeply disturbed and saddened by the recent horrific violence in Israel. I condemn in the strongest terms the actions directly targeting innocent civilians, including children. My heart goes out to the families of the victims.

“President Abbas and Palestinian leaders must take clear and meaningful steps to stop this violence and encourage unity, as Prime Minister Netanyahu has done in condemning retaliatory attacks. Excuses offered by some are irresponsible. There is absolutely no justification for violence against innocent civilians under any circumstances. All people have the right to live in peace and security, and I call for those responsible for these vicious terrorist attacks to be brought to swift justice.”
