US Senate Backs Israel 's Raids on Gaza

TEHRAN (FNA)- The US Senate has thrown its back behind the Israeli regime's air and ground offensive in the Gaza Strip, a war which has so far led to the death of at least 100 civilians.



Sens. Harry Reid and Dick Durbin - the top two Democrats in the chamber - and Republican leader Sen. Mitch McConnell said Israel's actions are "understandable", the Jerusalem Post reported.

The said the US would do the same if "terrorists" were firing missiles into the US from across America's borders.

The lawmakers made their comments on the Sunday television talk shows.

Meanwhile, Vice President Dick Cheney claimed that Israel did not seek US approval before ground invasion into Gaza.

Israeli ground troops and tanks roared through the Gaza Strip, cutting the coastal territory into two. The move came after days of massive air assault on the territory.
