Violent Attacks Against Israel Must Stop

Statement

The escalating situation in Israel and the Gaza Strip is alarming. Latest reports cite more than 400 rockets have been fired at Southern Israel from Gaza since November 10, while several rockets have come close to hitting major population centers such as Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in recent days.

Both Congress and the Administration strongly support the Israeli government's right and duty to defend its citizens against this unprovoked aggression. As a country, we can all agree no government should be asked to sustain daily attacks that threaten innocent lives. Continuing to engage in violence does nothing but destroy lives on both sides of the border and hinders any hope for peace between the Israeli and Palestinian people. I, along with my colleagues, condemn this violence, and urge Hamas to cease their rocket attacks.
