DeSantis condemns attacks on Israel; wants Florida to impose new sanctions on Iran


TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Ron DeSantis said he will expand Florida’s sanctions against Iran because of its support for terrorist groups across the Middle East, Gov. Ron DeSantis said as he criticized the Biden administration’s response to Hamas attacks on Israel.

DeSantis appeared at the Surfside synagogue on Tuesday to denounce the “barbarians” who carried out the attack, which has killed more than 1,600 people on both sides and 150 Israeli soldiers and civilians were taken hostage by Hamas militants.

“We will use every means available to stop the flow of funds to the Iranian regime,” DeSantis said at the Bar Harbor synagogue.

Iran celebrated the attacks, which began on Saturday, but denied suggestions it had provided military aid or intelligence to Hamas.
