International desk: US President Joe Biden wants to supply arms worth 1 billion dollars to the occupying Israel. For this he sought the approval of the Congress. News from the Wall Street Journal and the Times of Israel. These weapons are being given to fill the depleted Israeli arsenal in the war against Hamas, the ruling group in Gaza.

Of course, it will take years for everything to reach Israel. According to the published news, among the weapons that the United States wants to give to Israel, there is 700 million dollars in tanks. $500 million is on tactical vehicles and $60 million on mortar shells.

Israel has been continuously attacking the Gaza Strip since a cross-border attack by the Palestinian armed group Hamas on October 7 last year. In addition to the attacks, Tel Aviv has imposed a blockade on the Gaza Strip, leaving the territory's population, especially northern Gazans, on the brink of starvation.

Eight months into the Israeli war, vast swathes of Gaza have been reduced to rubble. The war has resulted in acute shortages of food, clean water and medicine. Most of the residents have been internally displaced. More than 35,000 Palestinians have died in the attack that has lasted for more than eight months.

After the start of the war, the residents of Gaza took refuge in the Rafah area, but Israel has intensified the operation, claiming that it is the last stronghold of Hamas. However, the US has warned of a freeze on arms shipments to the occupied country if Israel launches a full-scale operation in the southern Gaza city.

Despite US warnings, Israel continues to attack there. US President Joe Biden wants to supply arms worth billions of dollars to Israel despite suspending the supply of bombs in such a situation.
