Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) visited Israel with Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) to see the destruction from rocket attacks by Palestinian Hamas terrorists targeting Israeli civilians.
Cruz and Hagerty posted videos on Twitter while viewing some of the sites where rockets hit civilian homes. Viewing a destroyed home in Ashkelon in southern Israel, Cruz said the house belonged to an elderly woman and her caretaker.
Cruz said all of the damage to the elderly woman’s house was from only one rocket that “came through the roof of the house, destroyed the roof of the house.” Cruz then showed more of the home and said, “this was all of the damage that came from one Hamas rocket, one terrorist who murdered a woman here in Ashkelon.”
I’m in Israel and I’m seeing the results of Hamas terrorism.
