Congressman Joe Neguse Issues Statement On Violence In The Middle East

Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Joe Neguse issued the following statement on the recent violence in the Middle East: 

“The escalating violence in the Middle East is truly heartbreaking, and the loss of civilian life, regardless of nationality, is a terrible tragedy. There can be no justification for indiscriminate rocket fire on civilians, and like any nation, Israel has the right to defend itself from such attacks. It is critical for the violence to end, and for all parties to take steps to deescalate this conflict immediately. The United States and our international allies must work together and redouble our efforts to achieve a diplomatic solution to this long-standing conflict. I will continue to monitor the situation closely, and support the State Department as it continues to work to end the conflict and secure peace in the region.”
