CINCINNATI, OH – Senator JD Vance (R-OH) issued the following statement regarding Hamas’ brutal terrorist attacks against the people of Israel:
“The horrible terrorist attacks launched by Hamas are an act of war,” said Senator Vance. “We must unequivocally condemn these heinous acts of violence against innocent civilians and the Iranian regime for funding the terrorists who carried them out.
“Today, it is of utmost importance that the United States stand with our allies in Israel and offer our prayers for the victims of these attacks.
“We must also recognize the intent behind these acts of war. As our allies in Israel strive for peace in the Middle East, the Iranians hope these attacks will undermine the progress our allies have made toward stability in the region.
“Israel has a right to self-defense – that includes striking back with overwhelming force against their enemies. Now as ever, we must support our allies in their fight for freedom and security. May God watch over them.”
