The US administration has told key lawmakers it is sending a new package of more than $1 billion in arms and ammunition to the apartheid “Israeli” entity.

It’s the first arms shipment to “Israel” to be announced by the administration since it put another arms transfer — consisting of 3,500 high-payload bombs — on hold earlier in the month.

The administration has said it paused that earlier transfer to keep “Israel” from using the bombs in its growing offensive in the crowded southern Gaza city of Rafah.

The congressional aides spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an arm transfer that has not yet been made public.

The package being sent includes about $700 million for tank ammunition, $500 million in tactical vehicles and $60 million in mortar rounds, the aides said.

There was no immediate indication of when the arms would be sent.

House Republicans were planning this week to advance a bill to mandate the delivery of offensive weaponry for the Zionist entity.

The White House said Tuesday that Biden would veto the bill if it were to pass Congress. The bill also has practically no chance in the Democratic-controlled Senate. But House Democrats are somewhat divided on the issue, and roughly two dozen have signed onto a letter to the Biden administration saying they were “deeply concerned about the message” sent by pausing the bomb shipment.
