Haitian-American legislator condemns terrorist attack on Israel

A leading Haitian-American legislator here has condemned the terrorist attack on Israel and prayed for the victims of the tragedy.

“My heart aches for the hundreds of lives lost during yesterday’s brutal assault, as I pray for recovery of the thousands wounded and the safe return of the abducted Israelis,” New York State Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn, the daughter of Haitian immigrants, told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC). 

“I stand in solemn solidarity with Israel and all its people who have lost loved ones, while unequivocally denouncing these appalling attacks perpetrated by Hamas,” added Bichotte Hermelyn, chair of the Brooklyn Democratic Party, who also represents the 42nd Assembly District in Brooklyn.
