Statement: Rep. Schiff Reaffirms Unwavering Support for Israel Amidst Terrorist Attacks

Washington, D.C. — Today, Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) issued the following statement in response to the terrorist attacks in Israel:

"I stand strongly with Israel in the face of this terrorist attack by Hamas and declaration of war on the people of Israel.

Israel has a right to defend itself, and the U.S. must do all it can to assist Israel as it protects its citizens and takes all necessary steps to recover the hostages taken. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those lost and wounded.

Israel is experiencing its own 9/11 this weekend, and there are no both sides to this attack. Hamas is a terrorist group mass murdering hundreds of innocent Israelis and taking women and children hostage.

The U.S. must stand ready to provide Israel with the support it needs to defend itself including humanitarian aid and funding for the Iron Dome."
