The U.S. approved a massive $735 million sale in weapons to Israel on Monday which comes as the nation has battled against Palestinian terror attacks for more than a week.
The sale, which Congress was notified about several days ago, will focus on Israel acquiring precision missiles and special munitions from the United States.
The Biden administration has started to push for fighting between Israel and the Palestinian terrorist groups in Gaza to stop, even as Israel has cranked up the pressure and started to inflict serious damage against the terrorists who have fired more than 3,100 rockets at Israel.
“Spoke today with Egyptian Foreign Minister Shoukry to discuss the ongoing violence in Israel, West Bank, and Gaza,” Blinken tweeted. “All parties need to deescalate tensions – the violence must end immediately.”
“The Biden Administration has distanced itself from Israel by attempting to revive the failed Iran deal, siding with the Ayatollahs over our ally,” former Secretary of State and CIA Director Mike Pompeo tweeted. “America must be strong and defend its allies without hesitation.”
The weapons sale comes as Israel pounded Palestinian terrorists over the weekend by blowing up miles of underground terror tunnels and taking the fight to the front door of top terrorists by targeting their homes.
“Senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander Hassam Abu-Arbid was killed in an Israeli airstrike in the northern Gaza Strip Monday afternoon as rockets fired from the blockaded enclave continued to be fired towards southern Israel communities,” The Jerusalem Post reported. “The IDF said that Abu-Arbid, was killed in a joint operation with the Shin Bet intelligence services, commanded over the northern Gaza Strip brigade of the terror organization and was behind the launching of rockets and anti-tank guided missiles towards Israel.”
