We condemn the vicious terrorist attacks by Hamas against Israel. As a global community, we must unite in support of peace, security, and a peaceful resolution to the current situation. The bloodshed and mayhem that have been forced upon innocent individuals should never have to be endured. Together, we stand for peace, unity, and a brighter future for all.
ASIS International expresses our deep concern for the safety and well-being of our members and their families who find themselves in the midst of war. We continue to communicate with our volunteer leadership in the region to determine what their needs are and how we may meet those needs. Countless families and lives are being destroyed by the war, which is creating unfathomable pain for civilians on all sides.
