Congresswoman Nan Hayworth (NY-19) released the following statement condemning the terrorist attack that killed eight and injured 37 at a Bulgarian resort. Included in the death toll are seven Israeli citizens and the Bulgarian bus driver.
"The terrorist attack on innocent Israeli tourists at a Bulgarian resort is an affront to the principles that Israelis and Americans share and hold dear: to protect innocent human life and to preserve peace and security so that we can live in freedom," said Congresswoman Hayworth. "The fight against terror requires daily vigilance and resolve, and I will continue to stand with the Israeli people to assure that we are doing all we can to prevent hostile states and entities from committing heinous acts."
"I extend my thoughts and prayers to the families of those who were killed and injured in this vile and senseless attack."
