Moskowitz, Kean Introduce Resolution Condemning Iran’s Drone and Missile Attack on Israel 

Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-Florida) and Congressman Tom Kean, Jr. (R-New Jersey) introduced a bipartisan House Resolution condemning Iran’s unprecedented drone and missile attack on Israel. The resolution is expected to pass the House of Representatives later this week. 

The resolution reaffirms the House of Representatives’ support for Israel’s right to self-defense, supports Israel’s right to respond to this aggression through means it deems necessary, and calls on all countries to condemn Iran’s attack. 

“What the world witnessed this weekend was a Declaration of War by the Iranian regime against an American ally,” said Congressman Moskowitz. “Seeing missiles being intercepted right above the Temple Mount emphasizes Iran’s disregard for Muslim, Jewish, and Christian holy sites and innocent civilian life. America must make it clear through this resolution that this escalatory and disproportional attack is intolerable and that we stand with Israel against state sponsors of terrorism like Iran.” 

“48 hours ago, the world watched in horror as Iran launched over 350 drones and missiles to Israel,” said Congressman Kean. “These aggressive actions only escalate tensions and endanger innocent lives. I strongly condemn Iran’s unprecedented attacks on Israel, our greatest ally in the Middle East, and the House of Representatives stands ready to assist Israel with emergency resupply and other security, diplomatic and intelligence support.”  

Both Moskowitz and Kean serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
