Political leaders have commented on the perceived terrorist attack in Israel that killed Lubbock native Taylor Force on Tuesday.

Vice President Joe Biden was meeting with former Israeli President Shimon Peres just blocks away when the attack occurred.

Biden said of the tragedy:

"My condolences to Taylor's family and all of those who were victims yesterday and every day. The United States of America condemns these acts and condemns the failure to condemn these acts."

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu also issued his condolences to the family of Force.

“On behalf of the people of Israel, I send my condolences to Taylor's family and friends, may his memory be a blessing," said Netanyahu. You can see his full message below.
