Referred to House (sub)committee

Citing international humanitarian law, this bill would prohibit U.S. assistance to Israel from being used to support the military detention, interrogation, or ill-treatment of Palestinian children, as well as the use of torture, inhumane or degrading treatment, physical violence or psychological abuse, the holding of children incommunicado or in administrative detention, the use of solitary confinement, the denial of parental or legal access during interrogation, or the use of force or coercion to obtain a confession.

If the secretary of state could not certify at the end of the year that Israel had not used U.S. aid for these purposes, he would be required to report to Congress in detail the activities U.S. aid money supported that year.
