REP. LORETTA SANCHEZ RELEASES STATEMENT ON ONGOING CONFLICT BETWEEN ISRAEL AND HAMAS
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-46) today released the following statement about the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.
“I am glad that Secretary of State John Kerry is addressing the ongoing deadly conflict between Israel and Hamas by traveling to the region. I feel deep anguish, pain and sorrow over the deaths of more than 600 civilians in Gaza. My heart breaks for these grieving Gazan families. I also condemn the indiscriminate attacks upon Israel.
"It is clear that there can be no military solution to this situation that stems from a century of complex and deep-rooted conflict. We must de-escalate this situation and return to the negotiating table. A ceasefire that all sides agree to and respect must be reached immediately.”
