White House Puts Breaks on Munitions Shipment to Israel Amid Looming Rafah Offensive: Report


For the first time since the October 7 massacre in southern Israel, the White House has stopped a shipment of munitions for Israel, according to a report by Axios.

Two Israeli officials told the website that amid plans to launch new operations against Hamas terrorists garrisoned in Rafah, the expected aid delivery at the beginning of the month was not made.

Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has been vowing for several months to remove the last 4,000 militants who remain in the city, over very strong objections from President Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

In March, Politico reported that Biden planned to condition military aid to the Jewish state if such an incursion took place.

The incident has reportedly raised serious concerns in Jerusalem about the level of remaining support in the Biden administration for their efforts to remove the jihadists from Gaza.
