Conservative and members of House GOP leadership criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) over a tweet in which she lamented the violence in Gaza over the weekend.
“How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?” Omar tweeted Sunday night, amid a burst of violence over the weekend that left close to two dozen Palestinians and four Israelis dead.
“The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable,” she continued. “Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”
Israel and Palestinian militant groups in Gaza reached a cease-fire on Monday morning, according to multiple reports.
