Senators from both parties who were in Israel on Sunday were sent to a Tel Aviv shelter to wait out a rocket assault, according to the U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer
Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, a Republican, and Schumer can be seen in the shelter in a photo that Schumer released. It demonstrates what Israelis experience. On X, the website that replaced Twitter, Schumer said, “We must give Israel the support it needs to defend itself.
The highest-ranking Jewish political official in the United States, Schumer, made the trip to support Israel before President Joe Biden is anticipated to ask Congress to authorize military funds for both Israel and Ukraine.
The Democrat Schumer has stated that he will also speak with Israeli officials about the level of assistance that nation will require for both military and humanitarian efforts.
Additionally traveling were Democratic Sens. Jacky Rosen of Nevada and Mark Kelly of Arizona, as well as Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.
