U.S. Senator Ted Cruz on Tuesday condemned the rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza toward southern Israel.
“Today Iran-backed Palestinian terrorists like Hamas launched over 100 rockets and mortars at Israel. They attacked in the morning as Israeli children were walking to school. These attacks came after months of using Palestinian human shields as cover for other attacks on Israel,” tweeted Cruz, who specifically referred to a mortar shell that exploded near an Israeli kindergarten in southern Israel which miraculously was empty at the time.
“I unequivocally stand with Israel and support Israel’s actions to defend itself. The media must cease its mendacious coverage blaming Israel for Gaza violence, which rewards Hamas for its barbaric tactics. Hamas and other terror groups in the Gaza Strip must be defeated,” he added.
