Senator Coons statement on Iranian attacks on Israel

U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) issued the following statement after reports of Iranian attacks on Israel:

"President Biden has pledged our full support to defend Israel from attack, and I join him in that determined defense. Iran's direct attack on Israel with drones and missiles is a brazen escalation that will endanger lives across the Middle East. American forces and our partners are already engaged in helping defend Israel, and I pray that our joint efforts will succeed in minimizing casualties.

"The House should promptly pass this coming week the long delayed national security supplemental to ensure that our Israeli allies have everything they need to defend themselves from attacks by Iran and its proxies."
