Today, the leadership of the Orthodox Union issued the following statement in response to the terror bombing in Bulgaria which claimed 7 lives and injured many more.

“The Orthodox Union condemns today’s heinous act of terror perpetrated against innocent Israelis in Bulgaria.

We mourn the lives lost and those injured. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the families of the victims.

We commend the Government of Israel and its manifold efforts to determine the origin of this heinous attack, and ongoing efforts to assure the security of Israelis traveling abroad.

If it is indeed the case, as Prime Minister Netanyahu has indicated, that responsibility for this attack lies with the rogue regime in Iran, we expect the nation’s of the world to hold that government accountable for the loss of innocents today.”
