May 15, 2021
Press Release

Washington, D.C.  –  Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO) released the following statement on the rocket attacks against Israel:

"I will be perfectly clear on this fact: Israel has a right to defend itself.  The ongoing rocket salvos fired on Israel by Hamas are horrific terrorist attacks and they have killed too many innocent civilians.  I am calling on all of my colleagues in Congress to condemn these attacks.  The United States must support Israel's right to exist, and it is critical we have a unified front in defense of our ally as they fight back against brutal and indiscriminate attacks.  Congress must also continue to support Israeli defense programs like the Iron Dome, a system we have seen save countless lives this past week alone.  Now is not the time to back down from one of our strongest allies while terrorists continue to take aim at innocent men and women.”
