Brooklyn, NY – Today, House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries released the following statement:
I am heartbroken and filled with sorrow by the tragic news that Gad Haggai, an American citizen, is now believed to have been murdered by Hamas. His body remains in Gaza. We join his family in mourning the egregious loss of life that has taken place and pray for all those who remain captive. The safe return of Gad’s wife Judi and of every hostage must continue to be a top priority.
