Democratic Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania is highlighting the identities of those who were abducted by Hamas terrorists in Israel earlier this month.
“My office will display every last one of the innocent Israelis kidnapped by Hamas until they are safely returned home. We won’t stop sharing their stories until then,” a tweet, which features a video showing posters hanging on a wall, declares.
In a prior post, the senator noted that he had been “profoundly moved to meet with survivors of the October 7th massacre and families of Hamas’ hostages.”
“I met with Ronen & Orna Neutra whose son, Omer, is currently held by Hamas. The day before the attack was the last time he spoke with his parents. As a father, hearing Omer’s story was heartbreaking. Together, we hung his poster to stress the urgent need to get him home,” one post reads. According to the Associated Press, Neutra was born in the U.S. and is a dual citizen.
“I met with Yehuda Jefferey Beinin and his grandson Netta Alzili, whose parents Liat Beinin Atzili and Aviv Atzili were both abducted by Hamas. Liat is an American citizen. The last signal they had from her phone was in Gaza,” another post states.
While some Democrats have been advocating for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war, Fetterman has pushed back against the idea.
“Now is not the time to talk about a ceasefire. We must support Israel in their efforts to eliminate the Hamas terrorists who slaughtered innocent men, women, and children. Hamas does not want peace, they want to destroy Israel. We can talk about a ceasefire after Hamas is neutralized,” the senator said in a statement last week.
