White House approves $735 million sales of precision weapons to Israel

Lawmakers have 20 days to file a non-binding resolution objecting to the implementation of the deal, writes The Washington Post.

The administration of US President Joe Biden approved the sale of precision weapons to Israel for $735 million. The Washington Post reported this on Monday.

According to its sources, Congress received the notification on May 5 – a few days before the start of the exchange of rocket attacks between the Israeli army and Palestinian radicals. As the newspaper clarifies, lawmakers have 20 days to submit a non-binding resolution objecting to the implementation of the deal.

Palestinian radical groups in Gaza and the Israeli army have been exchanging strikes since May 10. The rocket attacks followed riots at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem, which began because an Israeli court decided to seize homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood from Arab families living there. According to the latest data, at least 10 people were killed on the Israeli side, and hundreds were injured. The Palestinian side reports more than 200 dead and almost 6 thousand injured during the current escalation of the conflict with Israel.
