Senator David Perdue Comments On Iran’s Attack On Israel

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on Iran’s attack on Israel over the weekend:

“Israel is America’s closest ally and security partner in the Middle East. Make no mistake, Israel has the absolute right to defend itself in the face of growing regional threats. Iran and Hezbollah are taking advantage of Syria’s deterioration by controlling Syrian military bases and escalating violence on Israel’s border. Iran’s decision to send a drone into Israeli airspace this weekend was reckless, and this behavior will not be tolerated. America stands shoulder to shoulder with Israel, with unwavering support and resolve.”
