Sen. Cruz: ‘America Stands Unequivocally With Our Israeli Allies as They Exercise Their Right to Self-Defense and Fight to Defend Their Citizens From Hamas’s Attacks’
August 10, 2018
KILLEEN, Texas - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement in response to Hamas's escalating terror attacks in Israel:
"No country in the world would tolerate the reality that Iran-backed Hamas terrorists have created in southern Israel, from regular riots with the stated goal of destroying Israel's existence as a Jewish state, to the almost 200 rockets and missiles that Hamas has launched in just the last few days. Meanwhile, inside the Gaza Strip Hamas continues to use innocent civilians as human shields, which is a brazen war crime. America stands unequivocally with our Israeli allies as they exercise their right to self-defense and fight to defend their citizens from Hamas's attacks."
