House Resolution 665, introduced by Rep. McKinley (R-WV), condemns the murder of Israeli and Palestinian children in Israel and the ongoing and escalating violence in that country.

On June 12, 2014, Israeli youth Naftali Frenkel (age 16), Gilad Shaer (age 16), and Eyal Yifrach (age 19), were kidnapped and subsequently murdered. Two Hamas members in the West Bank were suspected. Israeli military forces rounded up and detained hundreds of Palestinians, most of which were affiliated with Hamas. Palestinian Mohammed Abu Khdeir (age 16) was abducted and killed in a retaliatory act by extremists on July 2, 2014, in Jerusalem. Hamas fired hundreds of rockets over Israel in early July 2014. Israeli retaliation resulted in a sharply rising death toll that has surpassed 1,000 people Palestinians including men women and children across more than 1,800 target sites in Gaza.
