Statement from Summer Lee

“I am heartbroken by the unfolding events in Israel and Palestine

“I strongly condemn Hamas’ horrifying attack on children and innocent civilians.

“My heart breaks because of today’s violence, but also because I know there is more to come. The Hamas attack continues and, in retaliation, PM Netanyahu has already targeted densely populated civilian areas in Gaza.”

“We need urgent de-escalation and an end to this tragic cycle of violence. To achieve this, we must bring an end to the occupation and help broker a just and lasting peace.

“And we also know that there is no military solution that will bring an end to this violence. I am committed to working towards a just peace and building a region where everyone feels safe and protected.”
