One year has passed since “Operation Protective Edge”, Israel’s attack on the Palestinian Gaza Strip which killed more than 2,200 Palestinians and devastated its infrastructure.

Today Gaza remains under Israeli blockade, unreconstructed, teetering on the verge of humanitiarian catastrophe.

Write and call your Members of Congress and ask them to support this “Dear Colleague” letter to Secretary of State John Kerry calling for the United States to hold Israel accountable for its use of U.S. weapons to kill Palestinian children and wantonly destroy Palestinian homes.

And ask your Members of Congress and their staff to attend this Capitol Hill briefing on July 29 examining Israel’s failure to hold itself accountable through domestic judicial proceedings, and the options and need for the United States and the international community to do so.
