A group of Senate Republicans urged President Joe Biden to stand with Israel and stop offering sanction relief to Iran, which funds Palestinian Islamist group Hamas.
The group of 44 Republicans led by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio asked Biden to immediately end ongoing negotiations with Iran in a letter sent Thursday morning. The senators said the U.S. shouldn’t continue to offer sanctions relief to Iranian leaders in light of ongoing hostilities between Israel, a top U.S. ally, and the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which receives funding from Iran.
