US’ continued supply of bombs, warplanes to Israel questioned

# The Biden administration has in recent days quietly authorised the transfer of billions of dollars in bombs and fighter jets to Israel. This is despite Washington’s concerns about an anticipated military offensive in southern Gaza that could threaten the lives of hundreds of thousands of Palestinian civilians. According to The Washington Post, some Democrats feel the US government has a responsibility to withhold weapons in the absence of an Israeli commitment to limit civilian casualties during a planned operation in Rafah.
