WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today issued the following statement after the Iran-supported Palestinian terror group Hamas claimed responsibility for rocket attacks against Israel's capital Jerusalem:

"Today's reprehensible missile attack comes after days of heightened anti-Semitic incitement and violence driven by Palestinian leaders and the Iranian regime, including Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

"In recent days Palestinian terrorists have repeatedly attempted to murder Israeli civilians, torched thousands of acres of Israeli land, and have attacked Israeli towns and cities with rockets and missiles, including Israel's capital Jerusalem.

"In far too many instances, politicians and officials here in Washington, D.C., including inside the Biden administration and the State Department, have morally and diplomatically equivocated between our Israeli ally and Palestinian terrorists, and at times falsely, shamefully, and without justification singled out Israel for blame.

"The United States must stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the people and government of Israel, and I will work with my colleagues to ensure they have the support they need as they defend their sovereignty and respond to these attacks."
