Tester Statement on Freezing Iranian Assets

In response to the ongoing terrorist attacks against Israel, U.S. Senator Jon Tester released the following statement in support of freezing Iranian assets:

“As American intelligence officials continue to investigate the terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas, we should review our options to hold Iran accountable for any support they may have provided. At a minimum, we should immediately freeze the $6 billion in Iranian assets and explore other financial tools we have at our disposal. Moving forward, we need to ensure our ally Israel can defend itself from these ongoing deadly attacks against its civilians.”
