Federation Statement on Deadly Hezbollah Attack
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County condemns the attacks by Hezbollah against the Israel Defense Forces that killed two Israeli soldiers.
Hezbollah is a terrorist organization and an Iranian proxy that has committed a number of horrific terrorist attacks, including acts against Americans. Most recently, Hezbollah’s actions in Syria have led to the Assad regime’s ongoing repression of civilians in a civil war that has killed more than 200,000 people.
Recently, Hezbollah has been operating near the Golan Heights, opening a new front against Israel. Hezbollah, like Iran’s government officials, frequently states its goal to destroy the State of Israel.
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County expresses full solidarity with the families of the fallen soldiers and the entire people of Israel. In addition, Federation supports all appropriate military action by the Israel Defense Forces in response to terrorist actions that threaten the lives of innocent people.
