WASHINGTON - A slate of Republican congressmen in the US House of Representatives introduced a resolution that would support an Israeli strike against Iran's suspected nuclear weapons program.

The non-binding resolution introduced Tuesday by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) "fully supports Israel's lawful exercise of self-defense, including actions to halt Iranian aggression such as a strike against Iran's illegal nuclear program."

Another 12 Republicans are co-sponsors.
