America promises Israel, will remove all restrictions on arms transfer

Washington: US Secretary of State Blinken reportedly promised Netanyahu that Washington will lift all restrictions on arms transfers to Israel in the coming days. Netanyahu argued that slowing aid benefits Iran and its allies, thereby escalating conflict with Hamas. This follows an earlier freeze on US arms shipments to Israel due to concerns about their use in Gaza. The Biden administration recently reaffirmed Israel’s adherence to international humanitarian law, allowing further arms transfers. Permission granted.
Two prominent Democrats have also agreed to support a major arms sale to Israel, including 50 F-15 fighter planes.
