Rubio, Hagerty, Colleagues Introduce Legislation to Resupply Israel’s Iron Dome

Oct 19, 2023 | Press Releases

The world watched in horror as Hamas, the Iranian-backed terrorist group, stormed into southern Israel to slaughter, rape, mutilate, and kidnap innocent Israeli civilians—as well as dozens of Americans. Israel must be fully armed to defend itself and defeat Hamas.

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Hagerty (R-TN) reintroduced the Emergency Resupply of Iron Dome Act of 2023 to redirect the funds the Biden Administration plans to send to Hamas-controlled Gaza to instead resupply Israel’s missile defense interceptors.   

  • “Now more than ever, the U.S. must stand in support with our greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel. Instead of providing assistance to Gaza, the Biden Administration must ensure any taxpayer funds are used to support Israel’s Iron Dome to defend its citizens from the savagery of Iran-backed Hamas.” – Senator Rubio
  • “In the wake of Iran-backed Hamas’s savage attack on Israel in which over 1300 people in Israel were murdered, including 30 Americans, and as Iran-backed Hamas terrorists continue to launch missiles and rockets into Israel, the American people have seen the images of Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense systems repeatedly intercepting rockets and saving the lives of countless civilians. My legislation requires the Biden Administration to halt U.S. foreign assistance from going to Hamas terrorist-dominated areas and instead to redirect these resources to help Israel resupply its life-saving Iron Dome interceptors. The United States should unequivocally support the right of Israel to defend itself from terrorists.” – Senator Hagerty
