(July 18, 2019 / JNS) A resolution commemorating the 25th anniversary of AMIA bombing in Buenos Aires was introduced on Thursday in the U.S. Senate.
It was introduced by Sens. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). Co-sponsors included Sens. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Todd Young (R-Ind.).
“It is critical that the U.S. recommit to helping the Government of Argentina in their investigation,” said Menendez in a statement. “The Argentinian people have waited long enough for answers.”
The July 18, 1994 bombing killed 85 people and left hundreds of others injured.
The perpetrators, believed to be tied to Hezbollah and Iran, have yet to be caught.
Rubio echoed a commitment “to helping the Government of Argentina seek justice for the victims and their families.”
