Statement on Attack Against Tunisian Soldiers on July 16, 2014

Press Statement
Jen Psaki
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
July 17, 2014

The United States strongly condemns last evening’s terrorist attack near Kasserine, Tunisia, which killed at least 14 Tunisian soldiers. We extend our condolences to the families of the victims, and hope for the quick and full recovery of the wounded. Recognizing that only in an environment of security and stability will a democratic Tunisia be able to continue to move forward in a positive direction, the United States will continue to support the efforts of the Tunisian Government to combat the threat of terrorism.
