Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) issued the following statement today regarding the recent terrorist rocket attacks against the State of Israel:

"I firmly stand in support of the right of Israel, America's ally, to defend itself. Over 250 rockets have been fired at the State of Israel in the last twenty-four hours, and over 1 million Israeli citizens, 15% of the country's population, are under fire. I call on the terrorist organization Hamas to immediately stop all rocket attacks. This deadly aggression does not promote a pathway to peace for the region. The goal of Israel's operation is clearly defined and is aimed at removing a threat to Israeli citizens. It is my hope that peace will be restored soon."
