STATEMENT BY MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON FATAL ROCKET ATTACK IN SDEROT, ISRAEL
"My thoughts are with the people of Sderot after today's tragic death there. I was struck by the resilience of the residents of Sderot when Mayor Moyal and I visited a police station and a youth center there just a few months ago. They will need to draw upon that strength now to weather yet another series of reprehensible and senseless attacks. The terrorists that perpetrated this most recent tragedy want to frighten the residents of Israel into changing their way of life and we just can't let that happen. These senseless acts need to come to an end and we stand in solidarity with the people of Sderot."
