McMorris Rodgers Delivers on Promise To Support Israel in War Against Hamas
House of Representatives Approves $14.3 Billion for Israel’s Security
Washington, D.C. – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today released the following statement after she helped the House of Representatives pass a $14.3 billion emergency supplemental appropriations package to support Israel:
“Israel is at war with Hamas terrorists who will stop at nothing to achieve their goal of eradicating the Jewish people and the only democracy in the Middle East,” said Rodgers. “The United States has a moral obligation to lead with clarity, stand with our ally against this evil, and demonstrate our unwavering support. This aid package is critically important for Israel’s security and must be sent to President Biden’s desk immediately.”
Specifically, the Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act (H.R. 6126) would provide Israel with the resources needed to defend itself against Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists, including funding to:
- Ensure American military readiness and replenish domestic defense stockpiles;
- Bolster Israel’s defensive capabilities and replenish the Iron Dome;
- Support artillery and munitions production;
- Enhance security at the United States Embassy in Jerusalem.
H.R. 6126 will now head to the United States Senate for consideration.
