Senate Votes Down Bernie Sanders’s Resolution to Require Reporting on Israeli Violations

HeadlineJan 17, 2024

Here in the U.S., senators voted against a resolution advanced by Senator Bernie Sanders Tuesday that would have required the Biden administration to provide Congress with a report on how U.S. arms are being used in Israel and its human rights violations in Palestine. Just 11 senators backed Sanders’s measure. Of the 11 backers, only three have called for a ceasefire in Gaza: Elizabeth Warren, Peter Welch and Jeff Merkley. Dick Durbin is the other U.S. senator to call for a ceasefire.
