in the region, and has failed to provide
information requested by the State of Florida. , Gov. Ron DeSantis, via statement.
The order allows the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) to "carry out logistical, rescue and evacuation operations to keep its residents safe.".
Most major airlines have suspended flights
to and from Israel at this time.
There are more than 20,000 Americans, including Floridians,
in Israel who wish to return
home but are unable to do so, Jason Mahon, Gov. DeSantis' director of communications, via statement.
The state is currently "working on transporting
supplies" and "arranging for chartered flights home
for Floridians currently in Israel," an official said. .
Florida's National Guard and State Guard
have also been activated to help
"as needed," 'New York Post' reports.
Earlier this week, DeSantis proposed new
sanctions on Iran, which stands with Hamas.
It all does go back to Iran and the
Biden administration, unfortunately,
has let up on Iran. That’s part of the reason
they’ve had a lot of money, we all need to
come together as states and the federal
government really turn the screws on Iran. , Gov. Ron DeSantis, via statement.
