Biden Admin Could Send Another $18B in Arms to Israel Despite Mounting Deaths, Public Opposition

HeadlineApr 02, 2024

The official death toll in Gaza is now approaching 33,000 as Israel continues its assault in defiance of last week’s U.N. Security Council ceasefire resolution. In Rafah, an Israeli airstrike killed four people, including two children.

Meanwhile, Reuters is reporting the Biden administration is considering a new $18 billion arms package for Israel that would include dozens of F-15 aircraft. This is in addition to the recent U.S. approval of 1,800 2,000-pound bombs and 500 500-pound bombs, as well as 25 F-35 fighter jets.
