Congressman David Scott Statement on Israel-Palestine Conflict
Washington, May 16, 2021
Congressman David Scott (GA-13), chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, today issued the following statement:
“Israel’s right to secure the safety of its citizens is incontestable and while I pray for the day that military assistance and arms are no longer needed anywhere in the world, no nation can be expected to look past rocket attacks that terrorize its people,” said Congressman David Scott. “The Israeli and Palestinian people – whether in Israel, Gaza or the West Bank – deserve to live free from fear of indiscriminate rocket attacks targeting civilians. I hope for a diplomatic solution to end the violence between Israel and Hamas in the region and urge Israeli and Palestinian leaders to prioritize a swift de-escalation of hostilities to protect civilians during this conflict."
