Congressman Jim Gerlach (PA-6th District) issued the following statement on Monday as Israel continued to defend itself against indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza:

"Any nation that has endured the kind of unending barrage of rocket attacks on civilians like we have seen in Israel during the past week has an absolute right to defend itself against radicals intent on causing suffering and fomenting chaos. The United States stands shoulder to shoulder with Israel as the nation again confronts the immense threat to security and stability posed by radical Islamic jihadists on its southern border with Gaza."
