Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Stefanik released the following statement after the House passed Representative McCaul’s resolution stating the House of Representatives resolute support for Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Iranian-backed  Hamas terrorists:

“In the People’s House, we stand unequivocally with our great ally Israel. I am proud to have supported the House resolution reaffirming our unwavering support for Israel's right to defend itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other Iranian-backed terrorist organizations. In recent weeks we have witnessed the heartbreaking and barbaric crimes committed against Israel and the Jewish people. America cannot stand idly by as innocent children, women, and the elderly are stolen from their homes and indiscriminately murdered. House Republicans will ensure Israel has the capabilities she needs to defend herself, condemn antisemitism in any form, and hold the Biden Administration accountable for emboldening Iran and its proxies.”

The Resolution recognizes the U.S.’s support of the State of Israel as it defends itself against attacks by Hamas and other Iranian backed terrorist organizations.
