May 11, 2021 (Washington, DC) — Jeff Mendelsohn, Executive Director of Pro-Israel America, issued the following statement in response to the latest Hamas’ attacks against Israel:
“Pro-Israel America stands in solidarity with our greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel, and mourns the tragic loss of innocent lives that have resulted from Iran-backed terrorist group Hamas’ latest rocket attacks against Israel, targeting civilians and using Palestinian people as fodder for agitating escalating violence.
Israel has every right to defend itself and take action to stop these outrageous attacks and should continue to take every step possible to minimize civilian injuries and deaths. This attack further demonstrates how necessary U.S. security assistance for Israel is in this dangerous environment. Israeli Iron Dome defense system has helped keep civilians safe during these attacks. Israel must be able to defend itself – by itself – against these constant existential and violent physical threats from its neighbors.”
