Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul (R-TX) made the following statement amid the ongoing rocket attacks on Israel by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ):

“In just three days, the Iranian-funded terror groups Hamas and PIJ have launched over 600 rockets into Israel targeting innocent civilians. Four Israelis have been killed and many others wounded while hundreds of thousands shelter in fear. I stand with the people of Israel and call on Hamas and PIJ to end their attacks immediately. The United States will always support Israel’s right to self-defense.”
