Resolution Supporting Operation Good Neighbor
When I volunteered alongside the IDF in Israel, I witnessed firsthand how the men and women of the IDF play such an important role in not just protecting Israel but also providing stability in the Middle East.
Since its beginning eight years ago, the Syrian civil war has forced 14 million Syrians to flee the country. The IDF’s Operation Good Neighbor has resulted in important humanitarian aid and relationships between the IDF and the Syrian people, and we should continue to use this program as a model as we find new ways to bring long-term stability to the region.
My resolution reaffirms support for collaborative efforts between United States NGOs, including faith based organizations, and the IDF “for having provided vital aid to internally displaced people and local residents in southern Syria while also countering generations of hostility, promoting dialogue between neighbors, and ultimately advancing long-term stability in the region."
