Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement condemning the recent terrorist attacks against Israel by Hamas and PIJ: 

“I strongly urge the Iranian-funded terrorist groups, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), to respect today’s ceasefire and halt all rocket fire toward Israel. The terrorist rocket attacks from Gaza are unprovoked, indiscriminate, and must be condemned in the strongest terms. They are further evidence of Hamas and Islamic Jihad’s disregard for the Palestinian people whom they use both as human shields and hostages in their confrontations with Israel. The United States will continue to stand by the people of Israel and support its right to self-defense. I send my heartfelt condolences to the families of the four Israelis killed and pray for peace in the region.”
