Rocket Attacks Against Israel are ‘a Grave and Immediate Threat’

Congresswoman McCarthy issues statement on rocket attacks on Israel from Gaza.

Rocket Attacks Against Israel are ‘a Grave and Immediate Threat’

With the rocket attacks from Gaza that have barraged Israel this week, Israel and its citizens are under a grave and immediate threat and need the world’s support right now.

Israel has been suffering a barrage of rocket fire by terrorists from Gaza recently and has not just the right but the obligation to defend itself and its citizens with a forceful response that will stop the shelling.

The rocket attacks against Israel are an unconscionable act of terrorism and the world community – starting with the United States and its Congress – should stand behind Israel as she defends herself.

These attacks against Israel are a major setback to peace in the region and need to stop immediately.

Carolyn McCarthy is the representative of New York’s Fourth Congressional District. She was first elected in 1996.
