State Rep. Haraz N. Ghanbari (R-Perrysburg) voted to approve a resolution on Wednesday that supports Israel. The legislation passed overwhelmingly in the Ohio House.
"I'm proud to stand with the people of Israel," said Ghanbari, who traveled to Israel as a member of the White House Press Corps in 2008 with President George W. Bush. "The Ohio House stands against the attacks committed by the terrorist organization. It's important we keep them in our thoughts and prayers as we extend our unwavering support for them."
The resolution comes after last weekend when the terrorist organization, known as Hamas, attacked the State of Israel, killing hundreds of civilians and igniting a war within the region.
At this time, it has been reported the attacks have also killed over 20 Americans.
The fight between Israel and Hamas is ongoing.
