White House Reportedly Approves $735 Mln Arms Sale to Israel Amid Escalating Tensions With Hamas

This comes amid the fiercest escalation of Israel-Gaza tensions in recent years, with sides launching missile strikes for the past week following clashes between supporters of Arab families evicted from their homes in East Jerusalem and the Israeli police.

The US has approved the sale of precision-guided weapons to Israel worth $735 million, the Washington Post reported on Monday, citing sources in the US Congress.
