Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked US lawmakers on Friday after congress approved a motion castigating a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlement building that passed on December 23, 2016.

"After the outrageous decision passed in the United Nations Security Council, yesterday the US Congress decided something different," Netanyahu's office said in a statement."Members of congress have expressed overwhelming support for Israel and opposition to sweeping actions of the UNSC."

"The US Congress knows that the Western Wall is not occupied territory," Netanyahu continued," and they have expressed their intention to cancel or modify the anti-Israel resolution in the United Nations."

"Thank you to the members of the US Congress, and thank you America," he added.
