WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) is cosponsoring a resolution that expresses the Senate’s support and solidarity with Israel and condemns the recent wave of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis in and around Jerusalem.
“In the wake of an alarming number of terror attacks in recent weeks, our steadfast, unequivocal support for Israel must be reaffirmed. I stand with Israel, condemn these gruesome Palestinian terror attacks and urge the administration to support Israel’s efforts to protect its citizens while maintaining the status quo on the Temple Mount,” Boozman said.
Over 135 Israelis have been wounded in recent terror attacks perpetrated by Palestinians armed with knives, meat cleavers, guns and cars. Ten Israelis have been killed in the attacks.
The resolution, authored by U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), expresses support and solidarity with Israel in bringing the violence to an end. It calls for resolve to help stabilize security for both Palestinians and Israelis and for all parties to immediately negotiate for long-term peace and stability without preconditions.
