​(Communicated by the President’s Spokesperson)

"My heart goes out to the families of those murdered, who lost their loved ones in the despicable terror attack at the Sarona Market in the heart of Tel Aviv. Despite the tremendous efforts of the security forces to prevent terrorism, these murderers were able to carry out their abhorrent attack.
 
"We have no Iron Dome against terror attacks like these. The struggle against terrorism is difficult and long, but the State of Israel will not be disheartened. There will be no resurgence of terror, and we will relentlessly pursue the perpetrators.
 
"I wish to thank the security services, and the citizens who showed their resourcefulness, responsibility, and bravery under fire and prevented what could have been an even worse event.
 
"I pray for the swift recovery of the injured."
