Biden administration says Iron Dome funding will be left up to Congress

On Tuesday the Biden administration indicated that Israel will have to rely on Congress when it comes to replenishing their Iron Dome system.

At a hearing of Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Near East, South Asia, Central Asia and Counterrorism, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for the Middle East Dana Stroul reiterated the administration’s support for additional Israel funding but made it clear that it wasn’t their call.

“We have unequivocally stated our support for supplemental appropriations and support of replenishing and expanding the system. We have consulted extensively with Congress and provided information paperwork to you all to support how you choose to proceed in funding the request,” Stroul said.
