COLUMBUS— The Senate approved Senate Resolution 214, sponsored by State Senator Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) and State Senator Andrew Brenner (R-Delaware), condemning the attack on Israel by Hamas and those supporting their invasion and atrocities. 

This resolution declares our unwavering and unequivocal support for the Israeli people as they defend themselves against this unjustifiable and atrocious attack.

"Israel has a right, an obligation to defend itself. Israel is fighting for their very existence, for their survival," said Roegner. "We condemn the actions of Hamas and anyone supporting their attack on Israel."

On Saturday, October 7th, 2023, Hamas terrorists carried out an unprovoked attack on the state of Israel. Terrified Israelis awoke that morning to terrorists executing an intricately planned, coordinated attack by land, sea, and air.  

The subsequent reports of atrocities, including the kidnapping of civilians, the rape of girls and women, and beheading of babies has appalled the entire civilized world.

Officials confirm more than 1,200 people in Israel have been killed, including 22 U.S. citizens, and 20 or more Americans were missing.

Israel is one of our strongest allies and we must stand by our friends.
