Under the ‘Findings’ section: Israel has withdrawn all of its forces from Lebanon as per UNSC Res. 425 of 3/19/1978; Syrian- and Iranian-supported Hizballah continues to attack Israeli outposts in the Shebaa farms despite Israel’s full compliance with UNSC Res. 425; Syria will not allow Lebanon to send its forces to patrol its border with Israel, which means Hizballah controls the Lebanon-Israel border and much of S. Lebanon and continues to attack Israeli positions and maintain thousands of rockets on the border, “destabilizing the entire region.” Under “Sense of Congress” section: the governments of Lebanon and Syria should enter into serious, unconditional, bilateral negotiations with Israel to achieve a full and permanent peace. Under “Statement of Policy” section: Syria’s obligation to withdraw from Lebanon is not contingent on progress in the Syrian-Israel or Lebanese-Israel peace processes but on UNSC Res. 520. The president can provide U.S. assistance to Syria if the president determines that substantial progress has been made in negotiations to achieve a peace agreement between Syria and Israel and between Lebanon and Israel.
