US sending Israel $1 billion in military aid- Biden Administration Tells Congress

The Biden administration has told key lawmakers it is sending a new package of more than $1 billion in arms and ammunition to Israel, three congressional aides said Tuesday.

It’s the first arms shipment to Israel to be announced by the administration since it put another arms transfer — consisting of 3,500 high-payload bombs — on hold earlier in the month.

The administration has said it paused that earlier transfer to keep Israel from using the bombs in its growing offensive in the southern Gaza city of Rafah.

The package being sent includes about $700 million for tank ammunition, $500 million in tactical vehicles and $60 million in mortar rounds, the aides said.There was no immediate indication of when the arms would be sent.
