The US House of Representatives has backed a resolution expressing support for Israel and its right to self-defense.


Lawmakers endorsed the non-binding measure by a voice vote on Friday. It condemns Hamas for unprovoked rocket attacks on Israel. The bipartisan resolution is sponsored by Democratic congressman Steve Israel and Republican congressman Tom Cole.


The measure includes a provision by Republican congressman Ed Royce highlighting Iran's role in supporting Hamas.
