HeadlineMar 27, 2024

In Washington, U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin met with Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Tuesday. Austin said the civilian death toll in Gaza has been “far too high,” but he vowed the U.S. would keep arming Israel.
A new report by the arms control group SIPRI found that 69% of all arms imported by Israel come from the United States. The group said U.S. weapons, particularly warplanes, have played a major role in Israel’s attacks on Gaza and Lebanon.
