Press Release

Washington, D.C. - House Appropriations Committee Chairman Tom Cole (R-OK) released the following statement in response to Iran's airborne attack against Israel:

"Israel has the right to defend itself, and I strongly condemn Tehran's attack on one of our greatest allies. This is a dangerous escalation that further derails the safety and security of the region and the world. Congress must continue to ensure Israel is equipped with the resources and capabilities needed to defend itself in full force against this terror. This is a defining moment - our actions must show the United States remains steadfast in our commitment to Israel's security. We must work together and lead with strength. Our prayers are with Israel."
