Biden offered to help Israel after the terrorist attack in Jerusalem.

US President Joe Biden has instructed his national security team to contact Israeli counterparts to help those injured in the Jerusalem shooting and bring those responsible to justice, the White House said.

“The United States will provide full support to the government and people of Israel. In this regard, the President ordered his national security team to immediately engage with Israeli colleagues and offer them all the necessary support in helping the wounded and bringing to justice those who committed this heinous crime,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre says.

She drew attention to the fact that the attack took place on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

On Friday evening, Israeli police reported a terrorist attack on a synagogue in East Jerusalem. Local media reported that at least eight people were killed and 10 injured as a result of shooting in the Neve Yaakov area. Later, the police said that the dead – seven.

According to Israeli media, the perpetrator drove a car to a synagogue in the northern Jewish settlement of Neve Yaakov in East Jerusalem and opened fire. The attack came a day after a massive raid by the Israeli army in the West Bank city of Jenin, during which 10 Palestinians were killed. Hamas called the attack in Jerusalem a “reaction” to the Israeli raid in Jenin.
