The US government approves the delivery of billions of dollars in bombs and fighter jets to Israel.

The Gaza conflict continues. The Washington Post reported that the US government recently approved the delivery of bombs and fighter jets worth billions of dollars to Israel.

The report quoted sources from the US Department of Defense and the State Department, saying that the new arms supply includes 1,800 2,000-pound MK84 bombs, 500 500-pound MK82 bombs, and 25 F-35 fighter jets.

White House officials said that they will continue to support Israel's right to self-defense and emphasized that conditional aid is not US policy. The report said that the supply of relevant weapons had been approved by the US Congress earlier, but had not been delivered. The State Department said that fulfilling the notification to Congress on arms sales can be divided into dozens of separate arms sales cases, which can last for decades. The United States has been supplying Israel with air defense systems and ammunition, which has drawn criticism from domestic Arab groups.

US President Biden admitted on Friday that many Arab-Americans are in pain over the Gaza conflict and US support for Israel, and believed that it must be stopped to consider their pain.
