J Street Condemns Jerusalem Truck Attack, Mourns the Victims

January 8, 2017

We were devastated to wake up to the news today that one of the deadliest attacks in recent months occurred today in Jerusalem, in which 4 people thus far have been reported dead and 15 others injured.

We condemn this terrorist attack in which a truck driven by a man from East Jerusalem rammed into a crowd of officer cadets on a public promenade at a high rate of speed, and then backed up to maximize casualties.

As we mourn the victims, our thoughts are with their families, the wounded survivors and the people of Israel.
