The US House of Representatives, led by Republicans, passed the Israel Security Assistance Support Act in response to President Joe Biden’s delay in sending weapons to Israel during its conflict with Hamas. The bill, which is unlikely to become law, highlights the divide over Israel policy in an election year. The passage of the bill was largely along party lines, with some Democrats joining Republicans in supporting it. The decision to delay weapons transfers was made by Biden to prevent civilian casualties in Gaza, but has been criticized by some as a political move. There are concerns that US weapons are being used for human rights violations in Gaza, despite Israel still receiving billions of dollars in military assistance. The Biden administration has put a hold on some weapons shipments for review.
