Press Releases

Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued a statement after the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force units operating in Syria fired roughly 20 rockets into Israel’s Golan Heights.  In February 2018, Israel shot down a weaponized Iranian drone launched from Syrian territory.
 
“As the Iranian regime once again uses Syrian territory to attack Israel, America stands with Israel, our ally and fellow democracy, and strongly supports the Jewish state’s right to defend her people. The United States should hold the Iranian regime fully accountable and impose severe consequences if Iran’s forces or proxies harm the citizens of our nation or our allies in the Middle East.”
