Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement in response to the violence happening in Israel.
"The brutal barrage of rockets from the Gaza Strip, controlled by the terrorist group Hamas, must stop. No country should be subjected to have its civilian population under constant attack. Congress stands firmly with our friend Israel, and steadfastly supports our great ally's right to protect itself from terrorist threats."
"At this difficult time, it is vital that the United States stand with Israel and its right to defend its civilians and its national security. We must also be vigilant to stop any possible international efforts, such as in the UN, that may use this incident in an attempt to delegitimize Israel."
