As Hamas militants continue attacks on Israel, Congressman Jeff Landry (R, LA-03) issued the following statement:
"A year and a half ago, I cosponsored H.Res. 271 - a resolution expressing support for Israel's right to defend itself. Today, I reiterate that support. I firmly stand alongside our friend Israel in this difficult time. Israel has suffered greatly as Hamas continues to esclate rocket atacks.
I call on Palestinian authorities to end these assaults. Hamas must end its blatant, terrorist attacks against innocent Israeli civilians. Israel has my unwavering support to defend itself. We have no greater ally than Israel, and my prayers are with the Israelis in this trying time.
I pledge to continue my work in Congress to give Israel the support it needs going forward. In addition to H.Res. 271, I cosponsored and voted for the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act which will help strengthen our strategic defense partnership with Israel and ensure Israel continues to have the needed military edge to protect itself."
