Fox News released a statement on the bomb scare that shook CNN and several political figures Wednesday, and stood in solidarity with its fellow news network, condemning all acts of attempted violence.

Fox’s human resources chief Kevin Lord issued the internal memo and said employees’ thoughts are with CNN and its staff.

Media editor for TheWrap, Jon Levine, posted the statement on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.

Lord also said the network is beefing up its internal security in response to the threats.

CNN’s New York bureau in the Time Warner Building was evacuated as the New York Police Department responded to the potential threat.

In addition to CNN, “potential explosive devices” were sent to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s residence and former President Barack Obama.

The Secret Service intercepted the devices late Tuesday night and early Monday morning respectively and said the Clintons and Obamas were not “at risk of receiving them.”

This comes after billionaire George Soros received an explosive device in his mailbox at his home in New York, Monday afternoon.

A fifth package was sent by mail to the office of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in Florida Wednesday and her building also had to be evacuated.

The area has since been secured and the bomb squad called in.

The package sent to Wasserman Schultz was addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder, but listed the wrong address. Wasserman Schultz’s office was the return address.
