The White House condemned “unequivocally” Wednesday morning’s terrorist bombing in Jerusalem that killed a 16-year-old and injured more than a dozen.

“The United States has offered all appropriate assistance to the government of Israel as it investigates the attack and works to bring the perpetrators to justice,” White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said in a statement.

“We are saddened by the news of the loss and wish the injured a speedy recovery. The United States stands with the government and people of Israel. As President Biden emphasized during his visit to Israel in July, our commitment to Israel’s security is ironclad and unwavering,” the statement continued.

Two bombs exploded at a bus stop during rush hour in Jerusalem on Wednesday morning, in what police said were the first bombings targeting Israeli citizens in six years. Police suspect that the explosives left in the bag full of nails detonated remotely.

The 16-year-old victim, identified as Arieh Shechopek, was living in Jerusalem as a dual citizen of Israel and Canada. Hundreds attended his funeral on Wednesday.

The attack comes amid a tense political environment for Israel, where former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to form a majority government after being voted out and possibly back in the country’s most powerful position.

Prime Minister Yair Lapid promised that the terrorists would be caught.

“We’ll get to them,” Lapid said. “They can run away, they can hide, it will not do them any good. The security forces will go to them. If they resist, they will be killed. If not, we will deal with them with the full rigor of the law.”
