Despite decades of tension, Iran launched over 200 drones and ballistic missiles at Israel for the first time on Saturday. The Israeli military’s spokesman, Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari, told the Associated Press that Iran fired scores of drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles — with the vast majority intercepted outside Israel’s borders.

This comes just weeks after the Biden administration again decided to renew another Iran sanctions waiver.

U.S. Rep. Dale Strong (R-Monrovia), a member of the powerful House Armed Services Committee, said he is praying for Israel. He also called out Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) for failing to bring the House-passed bill that would provide $14 billion in military aid to Israel to a vote.

U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) said, "Alabama stands with Israel. America stands with Israel. Please continue to join us in praying for Israel, the Jewish people, and our fellow Americans and allies in the region."

The majority of the delegation echoed that message. U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) posted, "I will always stand with Israel. Please join me and lift them up in prayer right now."

U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) posted, "Pray for Israel."

U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) and U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) both pointed toward the failure of the Biden administration's foreign policy.

Palmer said, "The United States must stand with our ally, Israel. Joe Biden’s weak foreign policy has put Americans and our allies in harm’s way."

Aderholt posted to X, "The U.S. must stand behind Israel as they defend themselves from the Iranian regime. Iran wants to sow chaos and death, not just in Israel, but across the entire region."
