Simultaneously with arms supply, US bankrolls $225 million for Israel
Sunday August 3, 2014 11:14 AM, IINA

With no pause in Zionist barbarity against Gaza’s citizens, the US Congress, in a show of support for Israel, overwhelmingly passed a $225m package to replenish Israel's missile defense system.

The House's 395-8 vote in favor of the measure followed Senate approval on Friday. The bill now goes to Obama for his signature.

Earlier, the US Senate unanimously passed legislation on Friday to provide $225 million in emergency funding for Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system.

An earlier version of the funding plan had failed on Thursday when Senate Republicans blocked a broader spending bill that was largely intended to provide money to handle the current immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border. But lawmakers reached an agreement overnight to pass the missile funding measure.

Israel’s Iron Dome missile interceptor system, which was partly funded by the United States, has shot down most of the rockets fired at its cities by fighters in Gaza during the current three-week conflict.
