Statement from Chairman Jay S. Jacobs Condemning the Attacks on Israel.

“The New York State Democratic Committee strongly condemns the attacks orchestrated by Hamas on Israel. The unexpected rocket barrage and infiltration of Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip during a significant Jewish holiday are inexcusable.
New York Democrats stand united to unequivocally denounce this act of terrorism against the Jewish people and their homeland. I applaud Governor Hochul for her unwavering support of Israel and the affirmation of the special bond of New York with Israel.
As President Biden said in a statement issued this morning, our relationship with Israel is “iron-clad”. We stand with the people of Israel and all those who have lost loved ones.”
