WASHINGTON – Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives approved a joint resolution from the Senate approving $225 million in emergency funding for Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ missile defense system.

“It is critically important that Israel have the necessary capabilities to defend its sovereignty and its people from constant Hamas rocket attacks.  I stand with Israel, our strongest friend and ally in the region, and we must continue to support them in their continued conflict with Hamas.”
