Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on X that he has approved an executive order authorizing rescue operations in Israel.

DeSantis said the rescue operation will “bring Floridians home and transport supplies to our allies.”

Many departments in the state have deployed resources for impacted communities to ensure that “Florida does not tolerate the harassment of its citizens and to prevent terrorist activities.”

Protective operations have already been deployed in many major Florida cities, including Fort Myers and Miami.

DeSantis attacked the Biden Administration in the executive order stating that the administration failed to launch any form of rescue operations for Americans stranded in the region.

The order also stated the Biden Administration did not provide information requested by the State of Florida about any plans for such operations.
