WASHINGTON, May 15 — The US State Department has moved a US$1 billion (RM4.71 billion) package of weapons aid for Israel into the congressional review process, two US officials said yesterday.

The latest weapons package includes tank rounds, mortars and armoured tactical vehicles, one of the officials told Reuters.

President Joe Biden said last week he had delayed a shipment of 907-kg bombs and 1,700 227-kg bombs to Israel over concerns they might be used for a major invasion of Rafah, a town in southern Gaza.

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters on Monday that the US would continue to provide the military assistance provided in a US$26 billion supplemental funding bill passed last month, but the White House paused the bombs because “we do not believe they should be dropped in densely populated cities.”

Biden has urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to invade Rafah without safeguards for civilians, seven months into a war that has devastated Gaza.

Biden’s support for Israel in its war against Hamas has emerged as a political liability for the president, particularly among young Democrats, as he runs for re-election this year. — Reuters
