More than 40 Republican senators are calling on US President Joe Biden to unequivocally support Israel's right to self-defense and immediately end negotiations with Iran to lift sanctions, saying Tehran supports Hamas' terrorist activities against Israel.
Over the past couple of days, Iran-funded Palestinian terrorists in Gaza have launched a series of rocket attacks on Israel. They target Israeli civilians and cities, including the Israeli capital Jerusalem, 44 Republican senators wrote in a letter to Biden.
Republicans called the attacks alarming as members of the Biden administration are currently in Vienna and are in talks with Iran.
In light of these recent Hamas attacks on Israel, the United States must take all necessary steps to hold Tehran accountable and under no circumstances provide sanctions relief, they wrote, calling the issue particularly important as Iran supports terrorist activities against the closest US ally in the region is Israel.
The United States, which is actively negotiating with Iran and potentially providing billions of dollars to ease sanctions, will undoubtedly help Iranian support for Hamas and other terrorist organizations that attack the Americans and our allies, they noted.
