WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement this afternoon on the rocket attacks against Israel from Gaza:

“These latest attacks by Hamas and Islamic Jihad from Gaza against civilians in Israel underscore the danger facing our ally every day.  Attacks like these remind us who is truly keeping Palestinians’ aspirations from being met.  The United States will continue to stand by Israel as it defends itself against terror and violence.  I will continue to pay close attention to events on the ground and make it clear that support for Israel in our country remains bipartisan and robust.”
