Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the terrorist attack in Jerusalem that killed three Americans:

“Today, two Palestinian attackers killed four innocent people during their morning prayers in a synagogue in Jerusalem. Among the dead are three Americans. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of all of the victims and the people of Israel.

“Such an act of barbarism and terror is unconscionable. I condemn this attack and I call on the Palestinian Authority to take action to curb this violence, abandon its incitement against Israel, and seek a negotiated peace. Attacks like this can never be accepted and also set back the Palestinian cause.”
