Gillibrand Statement On Rocket Attack Against Israel

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today released the following statement after more than 200 rockets were fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip:

“The escalation in violence on the Israel-Gaza border is deeply disturbing, and I am relieved that Israel’s missile defense programs were able to avert civilian fatalities from this disgraceful terror attack. I urge calm so the situation does not further escalate, and I still remain hopeful for a long-term, peaceful solution to this tragic conflict. But the only way we will accomplish that is through negotiations that create conditions for safety and economic security – not through rocket attacks or any other acts of terrorism.”
