COLUMBUS—The Senate unanimously passed Senate Resolution 214, sponsored by State Senator Andrew Brenner (R-Delaware) and State Senator Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson), condemning the attack on Israel by Hamas and those supporting their invasion and atrocities. 

This resolution declares the Senate’s unwavering and unequivocal support for the Israeli people as they defend themselves against this unjustifiable and atrocious attack.

"What we have witnessed over the last five days has been some of the worst atrocities committed against the Jewish people since the Holocaust,” said Brenner. “There is no justification that can be made, or any excuse offered, for Hamas’s attacks." 

On Saturday, October 7th, 2023, Hamas terrorists carried out an unprovoked attack on the state of Israel. Terrified Israelis awoke that morning to terrorists executing an intricately planned, coordinated attack by land, sea, and air.  

The subsequent reports of atrocities, including the kidnapping of civilians, the rape of girls and women, and massacre of children has revolted the entire civilized world. Officials confirm more than 1,200 people in Israel have been killed, including 22 U.S. citizens, with at least 20 additional Americans missing.

Bi-partisan passage of the resolution affirms that Israel is one of the United States’ strongest allies and that Ohio stands by its friends.
