WASHINGTON -- The United States condemned an attack on a popular Tel Aviv market on Wednesday night as a "cowardly" and "horrific" act of terror.
A statement issued by the State Department said that US officials are in touch with Israeli authorities to express "support and concern."
"The United States condemns today’s horrific terrorist attack in Tel Aviv in the strongest possible terms," the statement reads. "We extend our deepest condolences to the families of those killed and our hopes for a quick recovery for those wounded. These cowardly attacks against innocent civilians can never be justified."
