Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on recent violence in Israel:
"The continued violent Palestinian aggression against Israeli civilians is destructive and will never yield resolution, just more violence, lives lost and families broken. This senseless terrorism against the people of Israel, which just this week claimed the life of an American civilian, makes peace harder. During my recent visit to Israel and the West Bank, I met with Palestinian Prime Minister Hamdallah and Palestinian Security Forces, and I pressed them to take action end to this violence. I make that same call again today."
