State Representative Sara Carruthers (R-Hamilton) issued the following statement condemning the Hamas bombing into Israel:
“Today's cowardly attack on the people of Israel by Hamas terrorists is simply unacceptable. For years, these Iranian-backed terrorists have posed a continuous threat to the State of Israel, and the latest assault has left numerous innocent Israeli men, women, and children dead or wounded.
It is imperative that, as Americans, we come together and steadfastly support Israel and its people as they courageously defend themselves against state-sponsored terrorism. Make no mistake, the people and places that despise Israel and attack Israel also despise America and its people.
My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families in the wake of this senseless attack. I proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Israel as they confront terror head-on."
