McMorris Rodgers, Abraham Accords Caucus Co-Chairs Condemn Hamas Attack on Israel
Washington, D.C. – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) joined her House Abraham Accords Caucus Co-Chairs – Representatives Ann Wagner (R-MO), Brad Schneider (D-IL), and David Trone (D-MD) – in releasing the following statement on today’s attacks in Israel:
“We fully condemn this horrific, unprovoked attack against Israel. Thousands of rockets have been launched at Israeli cities by Iranian-backed terrorists. Hamas is targeting innocent civilians, taking hostages, and executing people in a campaign of unrelenting terror. The reports of children and families forced into hiding shock us to our core. Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones, and we pray for the recovery of all those who have been injured.
“These acts of war must be resolutely defeated. Hamas seeks nothing less than the destruction of Israel, a nation that has the fundamental right to defend itself against all forces of evil and violence. We stand together in lockstep with our ally Israel as they take the necessary actions to defend their country, protect their citizens, and restore security to its borders. Hamas must immediately end this invasion.”
