Public Statements

Schakowsky Statement on Gaza Rocket Fire


Location: Washington, DC

"I strongly condemn Hamas's decision to escalate violence by launching a barrage of rockets against civilian centers in southern Israel. I stand with the President of the United States in unequivocally supporting Israel's right to defend itself and its citizens from violence. Hamas and other terrorist groups must immediately halt the attacks against Israel.

The loss of innocent civilian lives, both Israeli and Palestinian, is tragic and regrettable, and I urge all parties to take every precaution to protect civilian lives. I support Prime Minister Netanyahu's statement that Israel is doing "everything in its power" to avoid civilian casualties.

Hamas's ongoing use of indiscriminate violence against Israeli is harmful to the cause of Palestinian statehood and dangerous to the Palestinian people in Gaza. Its oppressive regime has caused immense suffering."
