The letter comes as another is already circulating among Democrats in the House that warns Israel of the perils of applying sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria.

The Republican letter, shared with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, was spearheaded by the first, second, and third-ranked Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives: Kevin McCarthy, Calif., Steve Scalise, La., and Liz Cheney, Wyo., respectively. It has garnered 116 signatures out of 198 Republicans in the House.
