Rogers, who was interviewed by Bob Schieffer on CBS’ “Face the Nation”, said Gaza conflict is “intertwined” with Iran nuclear talks and  Iranian funds help supply Hamas with weapons.

“That’s what’s so frustrating with the administration,” he said “All of this works together. You can’t just pick and choose one particular region; it has to work in concert. So when you free up $2.8 billion for Iran, when they’re already cash strapped because of sanctions, that means they can continue to do bad activities in the Gaza Strip, including we believe at least missile components.”
