138 House Democrats have penned a letter to US President Joe Biden imploring him to take decisive action to end the fighting between Israel and terror groups in Gaza.

“Too many people have already died and more will unnecessarily perish if America does not act with the immediacy this violence demands,” the members of Congress write.

“We strenuously urge your administration, at the highest levels, to boldly lead and take decisive action to end the violence,” they add.

The letter is organized by Reps. David Price and Gerald Connolly and co-led by Reps. Jan Schakowsky, Ro Khanna, Barbara Lee, Peter Welch, Mark Pocan, Alan Lowenthal, John Yarmuth and Lloyd Doggett.
