US Congressional representatives call to condition military funding to Israel in response to annexation

Thirteen US Congressional representatives, including Betty McCollum, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Bernie Sanders and Rashida Tlaib, called to condition US military aid in response to annexation.

In a June 30, 2020 letter, thirteen US congressional representatives told US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo:

we will work to ensure non-recognition of annexed territories as well as pursue legislation that conditions the $3.8 billion in U.S. military funding to Israel to ensure that U.S. taxpayers are not supporting annexation in any way. We will include human rights conditions and the withholding of funds for the offshore procurement of Israeli weapons equal to or exceeding the amount the Israeli government spends annually to fund settlements, as well as the policies and practices that sustain and enable them.
