(FOX NEWS) – President Biden is facing criticism from both Republicans and Democrats over the escalating violence between Israel and Palestine in the region that saw a Hamas rocket attack take aim at Jerusalem.
Lawmakers from vastly different ends of the political spectrum have taken aim at Biden and his administration over the growing violence in the region, calling out the president on the violence in the region — albeit for different reasons.
Sen. Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., demanded the Biden administration “strongly condemn Hamas,” the Palestinian terror group that launched rockets at Jerusalem as the city was celebrating Jerusalem Day on Monday.
“The Biden Administration should strongly condemn Hamas and other terrorists that are exploiting tensions in Jerusalem to carry out rocket attacks against innocent civilians,” Hagerty tweeted. “The United States should unequivocally support Israel’s right to defend its citizens.”
