Rep. Franks Condemns Hamas, Defends Israel

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-02) released the following statement strongly criticizing the recent terrorist attacks against Israel by Hamas:

I strongly and unwaveringly condemn the attacks that have so far claimed the lives of three innocent Israeli civilians earlier today.

“The citizens of Israel have for far too long been terrorized by rockets launched by a terrorist regime — Hamas operating in Gaza — with absolutely no regard for innocent life, whether it be the Israeli citizens who endure their cowardly and unprovoked attacks, or the Palestinian citizens behind whom they shamefully hide.

“Over 800 separate rockets have been launched at Israeli communities in the past 11 months.  It is the sovereign right of Israel to defend herself against these acts of terror and to take decisive action in order to defend the lives of the citizens of Israel.”
