The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County strongly condemns the terrorist attack on a group of Israelis traveling in Bulgaria that so far has claimed at least seven lives and injured dozens.

This terrorist attack takes place as we commemorate the 18th anniversary of the terror bombing at the AMIA Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires that killed 85, a lethal assault widely attributed to Hezbollah, Iran's proxy.

"It is crucial that the government of Bulgaria and the international community work tirelessly to find out who the perpetrators of this crime are," said David Phillips, chief executive officer of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.

"This attack also shows that no country is immune from the evil of terrorism. The international community, through the United Nations or other bodies, needs to deal with terrorism and rogue states that harbor it in a more forceful manner," he added.

Phillips also expressed condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims, and wished speedy recovery to the wounded.

Along with this, "We strongly and unambiguously support Israel's right to take the necessary measures to protect its citizens and to prevent another attack," Phillips concluded.
