Press Release

AURORA – Today, Congressman Jason Crow (CO-06) released the following statement:

“I am gravely concerned by the escalating violence in the Holy Land and encourage Israel and Hamas to reach an immediate ceasefire to prevent further destruction and loss of life. 

“I condemn the Hamas rocket attacks against Israel and support Israel’s right to defend itself. Palestinians and Israelis both deserve the right to live with dignity, freedom and security. A two-state solution remains the only viable path forward for long-term peace and stability; eviction and displacement of Palestinian families pushes that future further out of reach. 

“The United States needs to play a role in ending this violence, the brunt of which has been felt by children and innocent civilians.”
