Washington, DC: Following reports that two Palestinians attacked a synagogue in Jerusalem and killed four Israeli worshipers, Congressman Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, released the following statement: 

"This act of terror must immediately be condemned by the international community. As we mourn the death of the three American citizens involved in today's attack, our hearts go out to all the victims and their families as they attempt to recover from today’s senseless act of violence," said Turner.

"We recognize and support Israel's right to defend its territory and its citizens against further attacks by radical elements such as Hamas. The nation of Israel and its people continue to have my full support,” said Turner.
