Urgent: House adopts resolution backing Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas rocket attacks
The House of Representatives has approved a non-binding resolution backing Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas rocket attacks.
The House adopted the resolution by unanimous consent, so there was no roll call vote.
Reps. Steve Israel (D-NY) and Tom Cole (R-OK) were the main sponsors of the resolution.
Israel: “I vehemently condemn Hamas and their cowardly rocket attacks against the State of Israel. Despite Israel’s repeated efforts to pursue peace, Hamas has continued its policy of terror and violence against the Israeli people. That’s why I introduced this bipartisan resolution that expresses U.S. support for Israel’s right to defends itself against these unprovoked and unwarranted attacks and ensure its survival. I stand with the people of Israel during this difficult time.”
Cole: “Israel is one of America’s most important and loyal friends. As the world has watched the unrest and tension reach a new height over the last several days with rockets fired into Israel by Hamas, we remain supportive of Israel’s right to combat these terrorist acts. I am pleased to introduce this legislation and reinforce America’s support of Israel.”
