Moskowitz Leads 31 Members Urging DoD to Send Additional Iron Dome Systems to Israel

Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-FL), alongside Congressman Brian Mast (R-FL), are leading a bipartisan coalition urging the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to transfer two additional Iron Dome air defense systems to Israel as the Israeli Army continues to fend off rocket attacks from Hamas. The full text of the letter can be read here.

Currently, the two U.S. owned Iron Dome air defense systems are sitting idle and not being used. The systems were purchased by the DoD in accordance with the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). 

“Every time the Iron Dome is used, it saves thousands of innocent Israeli and Palestinian lives from Hamas terrorist. Now more than ever, the United States must stand with Israel in their war against terrorist who wish nothing but to destroy Israel and the people that live there,” said Moskowitz.

This call from Moskowitz comes as Hamas terrorist continue to fire rockets at innocent Israeli and Palestinian citizens. As one of the loudest voices in Congress, Moskowitz has routinely called for the U.S. government to provide support to Israel and increase sanctions on Iran – the main funders of Hamas and Hezbollah. Moskowitz has led legislation to further sanction Iran for using profit from oil sales to fund Hezbollah in Iran. In addition, Moskowitz has called on the Biden Administration to

  • Abandon negotiating re-entry into the Iran Nuclear Deal. 
  •  Enforce all statutory sanctions on Iran, particularly oil exports to China. No more sanctions relief, release of frozen funds, or concessions in exchange talks. 
  • Encourage our European allies to designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist entity and sanction Hezbollah in its entirety as a terrorist organization.
