“Strongly condemns”: Hamas and other “Palestinian terrorist organizations” for violations of human rights; their state sponsors Iran and Syria; use of “innocent Palestinian civilians as human shields” when launching rockets. Expresses condolences to families of innocent victims on both sides, expresses support for Israel to defend its citizens, and “expresses sympathy and support for innocent Palestinian civilians who reject all forms of terrorism and desire to live in peace with their Israeli neighbors but who continue to be utilized as human shields by terrorist organizations.” Calls on the president to instruct the U.S. ambassador to the UN to introduce a similar resolution to this one in the UNSC and “reaffirms the strong and unyielding friendship between Israel and the U.S.”
