Continued Violence in Israel and The Gaza Strip
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement today about the continued violence in Israel and the Gaza Strip:
"As Hamas continues to senselessly launch rockets into Israel, threatening the safety and security of Israelis and putting Palestinian civilians in Gaza in danger, we must be steadfast in supporting our ally's right to self-defense.
No government would stand aside and tolerate such attacks on their populace and way of life. Our leaders and responsible nations around the world should be united in condemning these attacks, which have now reached Tel Aviv and the outskirts of Jerusalem.
"I'm proud of the United States' support for the Iron Dome missile defense system, which has prevented even greater damage and loss of life, and we must continue to make clear that our alliance with Israel is unbreakable. We mourn the loss of life on both sides while calling for a halt to all violence and a path to a negotiated peace agreement."
