Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (NY-21) released the following statement after reports of attacks on Israel from Lebanon and Gaza, leaving thousands of Israeli families spending the first day of Passover in bomb shelters.

"As Jews around the world gather to celebrate Passover, it is sickening to see Israel's sovereign borders come under attack from Iranian-backed terrorists. 

“The United States supports Israel's right to defend itself from all acts of violence, and I remain committed to ensuring that the people of Israel have the support and resources they need to defend themselves."
