The United States is set to help fund the restocking of Israel’s Iron Dome defense system following the Jewish State’s 11-day conflict with Hamas in Gaza; Congress can expect to vote on the budget soon.
Following the nearly two-week conflict between Israel and Hamas, which included approximately 4,300 rockets being fired from the strip, Israel has requested $1 billion in funds to replenish its supply for the Iron Dome defense system. The US has reportedly pledged to fulfill the request and has said that Congress can plan on voting on the budget in the coming days.
The Biden administration is reportedly making the final adjustments before the budget is proposed.
President Biden claimed that in the several conversations he had with former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he assured him that the US would help restock Iron Dome. He also voiced his support for Israel’s right to defend itself against Gaza-based terror groups.
