(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Friday, 6 January 2017), released the following statement (click here for YouTube link):
"After the outrageous anti-Israel resolution at the UN, the US House of Representatives voted yesterday resoundingly to support Israel and reject this one-sided resolution.
Democrats and Republicans alike know that the Western Wall isn't occupied territory.
They voted to either repeal the resolution at the UN or change it—and that's exactly what we intend to do.
I want to thank the US House of Representatives which reflects the tremendous support Israel enjoys among the American people.
Thank you, America.
Thank you, Congress."
