Senator Ted cruz, R-Texas, shared emotional photos from house to house Israel which was destroyed in a bombardment by the Palestinian Authority-backed terrorist group Hamas.
The Hamas attack claimed the life of the warden of the elderly woman who lived in Ashkelon’s house, according to Cruz’s tweet, who described the attack as “heartbreaking.”
“Countless times I have seen a mezuzah hanging from a door frame,” Cruz wrote in his first tweet, which included a photo of the destroyed door frame still carrying the house’s mezuzah. “This is the first time I’ve seen one on a house bombed by terrorists.”
“That’s all that’s left,” added the senator.

Cruz told the Washington Free Beacon on Sunday that the purpose of the trip was “to hear and see firsthand what our Israeli allies need to defend themselves and to show the international community that we are unequivocal with Israel.”
