US to announce new assistance for Israel after Hamas attack

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Washington will announce increased funding and assistance for Israel on Sunday, adding that one of the reasons for Hamas’ most recent strike might have been to sabotage future normalization of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia.

The United States has also taken note of reports of several Americans killed in Israel and Washington is looking to verify the details and figures, Blinken added in an interview with CNN.

Blinken said details of that U.S. assistance will be made later, as he labeled the attack on Israel as a “terrorist attack by a terrorist organization.”
