Representative Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement concerning the rockets fired towards Tel Aviv: 

Yesterday, Hamas fired two rockets from Gaza towards Tel Aviv—Israel’s largest city and home to more than 3 million people. Last week, a missile was fired by the Iranians into Israel’s Golan Heights. This continued aggression towards Israel, our most strategic partner in the region, must be met with the strongest condemnation. As the Chairman of the Congressional Israel Victory Caucus, I fully support Israel’s right to defend itself against any actions that may endanger Israeli national security and the safety of the Israeli people.

This latest rocket attack against Israel comes at a time when we are seeing a rise in anti-Semitism—both here at home and abroad.  As we continue to gather more information about these rocket attacks, we must send a strong message - America expresses unwavering support for our great ally, Israel; and, Israel has the undeniable, sovereign right to exist.
