New York, NY – After a weekend of violence in Israel and Gaza, during which nearly 700 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza, prompting retaliation from Israel, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), released the following statement.

“I stand with Israel and its right to protect herself and her citizens. The Iron Dome saved lives this weekend, and I will continue to support funding for aid to Israel and its defense. The current ceasefire must hold to protect all peoples in the region and we must continue to seek a permanent end to terrorist activities by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other militant actors in the region.”
