H.R. 1175 (ih) To locate and secure the return of Zachary Baumel, an American citizen, and other Israeli soldiers missing in action. [Introduced in House] ...
One Hundred Sixth Congress
United States of America
AT THE FIRST SESSION
Begun and held at the City of Washington on Wednesday,
the sixth day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine
To locate and secure the return of Zachary Baumel, a United States
citizen, and other Israeli soldiers missing in action.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. CONGRESSIONAL FINDINGS.
The Congress finds that--
(1) Zachary Baumel, a United States citizen serving in the
Israeli military forces, has been missing in action since June 1982
when he was captured by forces affiliated with the Palestinian
Liberation Organization (PLO) following a tank battle with Syrian
forces at Sultan Ya'akub in Lebanon;
(2) Yehuda Katz and Zvi Feldman, Israeli citizens serving in
the Israeli military forces, have been missing in action since June
1982 when they were also captured by these same forces in a tank
battle with Syrian forces at Sultan Ya'akub in Lebanon;
(3) these three soldiers were last known to be in the hands of
a Palestinian faction splintered from the PLO and operating in
Syrian-controlled territory, thus making this a matter within the
responsibility of the Government of Syria;
(4) diplomatic efforts to secure the release of these
individuals have been unsuccessful, although PLO Chairman Yasser
Arafat delivered one-half of Zachary Baumel's dog tag to Israeli
Government authorities; and
(5) in the Gaza-Jericho agreement between the Palestinian
Authority and the Government of Israel of May 4, 1994, Palestinian
officials agreed to cooperate with Israel in locating and working
for the return of Israeli soldiers missing in action.
SEC. 2. ACTIONS WITH RESPECT TO MISSING SOLDIERS.
(a) Continuing Communication with Certain Governments.--The
Secretary of State shall continue to raise the matter of Zachary
Baumel, Yehuda Katz, and Zvi Feldman on an urgent basis with
appropriate government officials of Syria, Lebanon, the Palestinian
Authority, and with other governments in the region and elsewhere that,
in the determination of the Secretary, may be helpful in locating and
securing the return of these soldiers.
(b) Provision of Assistance to Certain Governments.--In deciding
whether or not to provide United States assistance to any government or
authority which the Secretary of State believes has information
concerning the whereabouts of the soldiers described in subsection (a),
and in formulating United States policy towards such government or
authority, the President should take into consideration the willingness
of the government or authority to assist in locating and securing the
return of such soldiers.

enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State shall prepare and submit
to the Committee on International Relations of the House of
Representatives and the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate a
written report that describes the efforts of the Secretary pursuant to
section 2(a) and United States policies affected pursuant to section
(b) Subsequent Reports.--Not later than 15 days after receiving
from any source any additional credible information relating to the
individuals described in section 2(a), the Secretary of State shall
prepare and submit to the committees described in subsection (a) a
written report that contains such additional information.
(c) Form of Reports.--A report submitted under subsection (a) or
(b) shall be made available to the public and may include a classified
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
