De Blasio ‘horrified and heartbroken’ by Jerusalem attack; NYPD ups security

NEW YORK (PIX11) – Mayor de Blasio condemned a deadly attack at a Jerusalem synagogue Tuesday, and called on New Yorkers to stay vigilant as the NYPD increases security at synagogues and symbolic locations in the city.

“I am horrified and heartbroken by today’s terror attack in Jerusalem, which took the innocent lives of four people,” de Blasio said.  “My thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families.”

On Tuesday morning, two Palestinian cousins armed with knives, axes and a gun entered a synagogue in West Jersalem’s Har Nof area and attacked congregants during morning prayer, killing four and wounding six others, CNN reported.

Three of those killed were U.S.-Israeli citizens, the fourth had dual British and Israeli citizenship.

It was the deadliest act of violence in Jerusalem since March 2008, when a man armed with an automatic rifle opened fire on a group of seminary students, killing eight.

“The NYPD is in close contact with its liaison post in Israel. We have increased our police presence at synagogues and other key locations around the city,” Mayor de Blasio said Tuesday.  “As always, we ask New Yorkers to stay alert and immediately report any suspicious activity.”

Commissioner Bratton confirmed that the NYPD is closely monitoring the situation in Israel, and the NYPD is now working with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force to intercept any possible threat to New York City.

The NYPD is also “increasing attention” to synagogues and symbolic locations.

    Well, hopefully those two piece of shite cousins are caught and executed. They are certainly in for a nasty surprise if they think they have paradise waiting for them on the other side.
