Wicker Statement on Israel

Miss. Senator Stands with U.S. Ally

October 7, 2023

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today reacted to the wave of attacks on Israel by Iranian-backed Hamas militants:

"I stand with Israel in the face of this unprovoked attack by Iran-backed Hamas militants. As our best ally and friend in the Middle East, the safety and security of Israel must always be our priority. I strongly condemn these acts of terror and fully support Israel's right to defend itself. I am praying for Israel today."

“Today’s attacks underscore the Biden administration’s naïve approach to Iran. President Biden’s lenient policy has sent billions in cash to Iran to continue its funding of terrorists and has jeopardized our closest regional partner, Israel. I will continue holding this administration accountable to support Israel and deter Iran.”
