The unprecedented rocket attacks from the terrorist group Hamas has fired a barrage of over 1,300 rockets at Israel. The violence, which was instigated by the de-facto rulers of the Gaza Strip, has continued to escalate as Israel defends herself from the attacks.
Approximately 20-30% of launches have landed in Gaza, endangering the lives of Palestinian civilians as well. Hamas’ indiscriminate launching of rockets toward population centers, along with their incitement of others to violence, places the responsibility for the current situation squarely on their shoulders. In response to the continuing attacks, the Israel Defense Forces and Israel Security Agency have conducted a number of strikes against terror targets and Hamas operatives in the Gaza Strip.
Pastor Mario Bramnick, President of Latino Coalition for Israel, stated “Israel is fighting on the basis of faith to defend the Land of Israel for all Israelis, Jewish and Arabs who reside in the Land. The media is falsely blaming Israel for the hostility. While Hamas targets civilians of all faith, Israel targets terrorists. Israel will continue to hold Hamas accountable for its actions.”
Pastor Bramnick also stated that “Hispanic Evangelicals strongly condemn the terrorist action of Iranian’s proxy, Hamas on civilians and affirms Israel’s absolute right to defend itself from these senseless attacks.”
The Latino Coalition for Israel’s vision is to engage and activate Hispanics in the Pro-Israel movement to counter the global rise of antisemitism and the Campaign to Delegitimize the Nation of Israel and to engage heads of state of Latin American countries to move their Embassies to Jerusalem. Our vision is to establish the largest Pro-Israel Hispanic entity: The Latino Coalition for Israel (LCI).
