Touring Israel, Biden’s UN Envoy Vows Replenishment of Iron Dome

On Tuesday, US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield visited Israel and toured the country’s northern and southern borders with the Israeli military and vowed that the US would “replenish” the Iron Dome Missile defense system.

After the Israeli bombing campaign in Gaza in May, which killed over 250 Palestinians, including over 60 children, Israel requested an additional $1 billion in military aid from Washington, on top of the $3.8 billion the US provides each year.

Israeli officials initially said the funds were needed to replenish the Iron Dome and to buy more missiles for Israel’s air force. But a bill to give Israel the extra $1 billion that passed overwhelmingly through the House says the aid is only for the Iron Dome, giving Israel supporters in Congress the excuse that the additional aid will only be used for “defense.”
