(Worthy News) – The US Senate approved $4.8 billion in military aid to Israel as part of its $1.5 trillion omnibus spending package.
The legislation sets aside $1 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, which is used to intercept missiles and other projectiles launched by Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Last May, Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups launched 4,300 rockets at Israel in 11 days. The Irone Dome intercepted 90% of the missiles aimed at civilian populations.
For months, the Iron Dome funding was delayed in Congress. Despite facing opposition from several progressives, House Democrats overwhelmingly passed a standalone $1 billion bill in September to replenish the Iron Dome. However, when the measure moved to the Senate, Republican Sen. Rand Paul (KY) shot down repeated bipartisan attempts to pass it. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
