US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro tweeted his congratulations to Israelis soon after polls closed Tuesday night.

“Mazal tov to the Israeli people on their just completed elections! Always inspiring to see democracy in action!” he wrote. He last posted that the United States “looks forward to working closely with next government of Israel.”

In Washington, Rep. Eliot Engel, ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released a statement praising Israel’s democracy.

"Israel demonstrated once again that it is the only flourishing democracy in the Middle East,” he said.

He went on to congratulate Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for his first-place finish but said that “US Congress stands shoulder to shoulder with the state of Israel” across its political spectrum.

He added, “We in Congress will always defend Israel. This commitment is ironclad, a pledge made by Democrats and Republicans alike."
