Yakym Votes For Resolution Condemning Iran’s Attacks on Israel; Legislation To Counter Iranian Aggression 

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Rudy Yakym (IN-02) issued the following statement after voting for H. Res. 1143, a bipartisan resolution condemning Iran’s unprecedented drone and missile attack on Israel:

“Iran’s terrorist attacks on Israel last weekend were unprecedented, unjustified, and need to be condemned in the strongest possible terms. Fortunately, 99 percent of the rockets fired at Israel were intercepted, which is a testament to the Iron Dome’s efficacy and the importance of U.S. security assistance for Israel.

“The Iranian regime has repeatedly stated they want Israel wiped off the map. History teaches us that we need to take these provocations extremely seriously. I am glad the House came together today to speak with one voice condemning Iran’s brazen terrorist attacks and to reaffirm our unwavering support for our friend and ally Israel.”

Background:

  • Yesterday, Congressman Yakym voted for multiple bills to counter Iran’s malign activities in the Middle East.
  • This legislation included bills to redesignate the Iran-backed Houthis as a foreign terrorist organization, eliminate sanctions waivers used by the Biden administration on Iran, and to ensure Congress can conduct oversight of any sanctions relief proposal related to Iran prior to sanctions being lifted.
