Sen. Cruz Issues Statement Condemning Attack on Tel Aviv



WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement after rockets were fired from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip into Israel’s largest metropolitan area:

“The Iran-backed terror group Hamas is responsible for the unceasing attacks on Israeli civilians launched from the Gaza Strip, which the group rules and controls. Our Israeli allies have an absolute right to self-defense, and the United States should do whatever possible to bolster that defense. Many of the rocket and missile attacks on Israel are double war crimes, launched at Israeli civilians from behind Palestinian civilians. I urge the Trump administration to robustly implement the Sanctioning the Use of Civilians as Defenseless Shields Act, which includes my legislation imposing mandatory sanctions on Iran-backed Hamas and Hezbollah for the use of human shields.”
