On Thursday, November 21, 2019 Congressman Jeff Van Drew introduced H.Res. 727, a bipartisan House Resolution condemning terrorist rocket attacks on Israel and supporting Israel’s right to defend itself. Between November 12th and 14th, 2019, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorists in Gaza launched more than 450 rockets at Israel, evacuating homes, schools, and hospitals, and forcing innocent Israelis to flee to bomb shelters.
“In a region wrought with strife, the shared democratic values between the U.S. and Israel have been the foundation for our historic and deep-rooted partnership. These atrocious attacks on civilians are unacceptable,” said Congressman Jeff Van Drew (NJ-2). “It is essential for Israel’s safety and ours that we do everything we can to support our staunchest ally at all times.”
