Urge Your Senators to Support the STOP Using Human Shields Act

The Sanction Terrorist Operations Using Human Shields Act of 2018 (S. 3257)—or the STOP Using Human Shields Act—mandates sanctions against members of foreign terrorist organizations responsible for the use of human shields.

Terrorist groups—including Hamas, Hezbollah and ISIS—are blatantly violating international law by placing their terrorist infrastructure among civilian populations and hiding behind innocent civilians as they carry out armed attacks.

Authored by Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Joe Donnelly (D-IN), this bipartisan legislation requires the president to impose sanctions on members of U.S. designated foreign terrorist organizations that knowingly encourage, order, control or are complicit in, any attempt to use human shields.

Please urge your senators to cosponsor this bipartisan bill and thank those who have already done so.
