Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY17/Rockland-Westchester), Ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee and its Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, issued the following statement regarding the recent rocket attacks on Israel: 

“Since Monday afternoon, Hamas has indiscriminately fired approximately 400 rockets and mortars at Israel in response to a targeted anti-terror raid. This escalation, the largest increase in violence since 2014, is unconscionable, and I condemn Hamas’ actions, which threaten civilians on both sides. I hope that a long-term conflict can be avoided, and a ceasefire will be reached soon.”
