"We condemn unequivocally the acts of terror overnight in Jerusalem. The United States has offered all appropriate assistance to the Government of Israel as it investigates the attack and works to bring the perpetrators to justice," White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement.

"We mourn the reported loss of life and wish a speedy recovery to the injured. The United States stands with the Government and people of Israel."
