Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) today released the following statement in response to the ongoing Hamas assault on Israel's civilian population and to express his support for Israel:
"I continue to stand with our ally Israel as it faces ongoing rocket attacks from Hamas and other terrorist organizations in Gaza. Nearly 1,000 rockets have been fired into southern Israel this year, including more than 270 rockets fired in the past two days.
"More than one million Israelis remain under threat of Gaza rocket fire. I firmly support the right of Israel to act in self-defense against these attacks and to protect its citizens from harm. My thoughts are with the people of Israel at this time."
