“Hamas is a terrorist organization and Israel has the right to defend itself against terrorist attacks,” said the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, referring to the situation in the Middle East. He said that is Israel is a U.S. ally and that Hamas is a terrorist organization.
“I have friends there who have been hiding in bomb shelters that overnight because of Hamas, which is a terrorist group, Hamas is a terrorist organization. They are to blame in this,” DeSantis said in a video posted on Twitter.
He said that, in his opinion, the situation is not generated mainly by Israel but because Hamas is claiming territory from Israel.
Trump also says Israel has right to defend itself and Hamas is a terrorist organization
DeSantis’ statements coincide with the position of former President Trump, who assured Tuesday that the United States must support its ally, which is Israel. “Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel is provoking new attacks against our allies,” Trump said.
Similarly, the former President also recalled that during his administration there was American support for Israel and that is why it did not suffer attacks. He maintained that the United States will always strongly support Israel’s right to defend itself.
