COLUMBUS—State Senator Sandra O'Brien (R-Ashtabula) strongly supports Senate Resolution 214 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.

“The horrific terrorist attack on Israel is a painful reminder of the hatred the Israeli people continue to endure,” O’Brien said. “My Senate colleagues and I stand with Israel, one of our strongest national allies, as they mourn and defend themselves. We are with our Jewish brothers and sisters today and every day, and continue to remember them in prayer.”

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, & air. 

The subsequent reports of atrocities, including the kidnapping of civilians, the rape of girls and women, and beheading of babies has revolted 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.

We condemn the actions of Hamas in the strongest terms possible.
