"Israel" will ask US for $1 Billion in emergency military aid
Israeli Home Front Command commander recommends strengthening the iron windows of the fortified rooms in the Gaza envelope and Minister of Defense Benny Gantz will raise several Israeli "security concerns" to his US counterpart Lloyd Austin.
Israeli Haaretz newspaper said that the Israeli Home Front Command commander Ori Gordin recommended Tuesday strengthening the iron windows in the fortified rooms in the Gaza envelope, increasing their thickness to 32 mm. According to a new intelligence report, it is expected that the capabilities of the weapons of the Palestinian organizations and factions are expected to develop, based on the lessons taught during the so-called operation "Guardians of the Wall".
Gordin clarified that the occupation's Home Front Command would draw up the map of homes facing the Gaza Strip and would determine which houses are under threat and need their fortified rooms' iron windows strengthened.
Gordin also noted that the government funds the fortified rooms that are in the settlements of the Gaza envelope, and it will have to decide whether or not it could afford to strengthen the windows.
Emergency Military Aid
Republican US Senator Lindsey Graham announced that "Israel" would request $1 billion in emergency military aid from the United States to replenish the Israeli army's ammunition stockpile following the aggression on Gaza.
According to Walla, Israeli officials confirmed Graham's words, saying that "Israel" needs aid to replenish its stockpile of bunker-buster missiles and precision-guided missiles for aircraft and replenish their stockpile of Iron Dome interceptor missiles.
The site also indicated that occupation Security Minister Benny Gantz would raise the topic of emergency military aid during his meeting with his US counterpart Secretary Loyd Austin and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan. He will also raise the topic of the JCPOA, the ceasefire with Gaza, rebuilding the Strip, and the situation in Syria and Lebanon.
According to Walla, the Israeli military aid request comes in light of several Democrat congressmen asking to review parts of the arm deals with "Israel" against the backdrop of harming the innocent people in Gaza.
The Joe Biden Administration had approved a $735 million arms sale to "Israel" in the wake of the war on Gaza, the bulk of the deal being "Joint Direct Attack Munitions," which are groups that convert the so-called unguided bombs into precision-guided missiles.
