MADISON, WI – Today, U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement regarding the Hamas attacks on Israel:
“I condemn the heinous attacks by Hamas on Israel. Any hostages should be released immediately and the violence must end. Violence against the people of Israel only makes the situation worse.
“I also hope for understanding that not everyone in Gaza is Hamas. Targeted response and humane restraint towards non-combatants is essential.
“Ending the violence and death needs to be the primary goal. I mourn with the families of those attacked and hope for peace in this troubled region.”
