Foreign Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett on Sunday described the attack at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh as “devastating” and “cowardly”.
Speaking to Fox News from Pittsburgh, where he visited the site of the attack, Bennett said, “How cowardly, how hateful do you need to be to go and shoot a 97-year-old woman? We stand together with the United States today.”
Bennett lit candles at the entrance to the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in memory of the 11 victims. He stated: “The heart is stunned by the events, 11 families who lost loved ones in cursed moments of hatred and madness. The State of Israel and the people of Israel bow down with the Pittsburgh community, which has experienced a tremendous tragedy.
“We came here to lend a hand, to strengthen and to convey a clear message – a unified, strong and united People of Israel, a s one man, with one heart. May they rest in peace.”
