Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik made the following statement 100 days after the brutal October 7th Hamas terrorist attacks against Israel.

“Exactly 100 days ago, the Jewish people experienced the bloodiest day since the Holocaust when Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists invaded Israel and brutally murdered over 1,200 innocent civilians in cold blood. These barbaric terrorists used sexual violence as a weapon of war against Israeli women and girls and took hundreds of men, women, babies, and elderly victims as hostages, ripping them away from their families and loved ones. Today, as Israel continues its war to eradicate Hamas, over one hundred hostages are still held by Hamas in Gaza. As a mother, wife, daughter, and sister my heart breaks for the hostages and their families for the unspeakable pain they are enduring every day. House Republicans stand with our great ally Israel and we will do everything in our power to provide them the resources to return every last hostage and protect their nation.”
