Nov 16, 2012 Issues: Foreign Affairs

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz released the following statement today concerning the rocket attacks against Israel.

“The continued and now escalated rocket attacks on Israel by anti-Israel Hamas extremists from Gaza are unacceptable and a threat to Israel's security and people. The continuation of these attacks and their extension into dense population centers must be stopped.

Israel's response is well within its right as it protects its people and its nation. I stand with Israel as she seeks to protect herself and her people and call on Hamas to stand down so that a peaceful resolution can be sought for Israel and her neighbors.”
