May 5, 2019
Press Release

PHILADELPHIA - Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02) released the following statement in the wake of a weekend missile attack on Israel:
 
“This weekend, the terrorist groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad launched more than 600 rockets from Gaza into Israel. Tragically, innocent civilians in both Israel and Gaza have been killed. This must stop now. Innocent civilians should never be a target of such attacks. Israel, like any other country, has a right to defend itself. Hamas must stop launching attacks and hiding amongst the civilian population in Gaza.”
