Three hawkish Republican senators have submitted a resolution calling on US President Joe Biden to use American military force to rescue the hostages in Gaza.

The purely symbolic initiative, which is understood to have no chance of passing, is being pushed by Sens. Rick Scott, Tom Cotton and Roger Wicker.

“The president has the authority and the responsibility to consider the use of all appropriate tools at his disposal to secure their safe release. It is past time to bring them all home,” Scott says in a statement.
