The U.S. House of Representatives mourned the loss of life in Israel's worst-ever forest fire and pledged to support assistance. The nonbinding resolution passed unanimously Tuesday "mourns the loss of life and extends condolences to the families affected by the fire in northern Israel" and "supports the Obama Administration’s offer of, and rapid efforts to provide, United States fire fighting assistance to Israel in response to this disaster."
