Several Republican senators have traveled to survey the Israeli town of Ashkelon and meet with Israeli Defense Force (IDF) service members after clashes between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority-backed terror group Hamas.
Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., visited Ashkelon on Monday and Tuesday, touring the remains of an elderly woman’s house that was bombed by Hamas in an attack that claimed the life of her caretaker.
Cruz had shared photos of the same house Monday on Twitter, calling the pictures of the home “heartbreaking.”
“They got the warning that the rocket was coming,” Cruz said while showing the mangled bed of the homeowner. “She evacuated, her caretaker didn’t make it out.”
