Amid international furor over the ongoing humanitarian disaster of the Gaza war, the United States secretly sent weapons shipments to Israel at the rate of one every 1.5 days.

US authorities disclosed the sales to members of Congress at a classified meeting that was reported by Truthout. The weapons being sent over include precision-guided munitions, small-diameter bombs, bunker busters, and other lethal aids. These weapons are likely being used by Israel to continue the destruction of Gaza. 

Prior findings reveal that during the initial six months of Israel’s ongoing offensive, 22,000 US-supplied bombs were dropped on Gaza, causing a significant percentage of the 31,000 Palestinian deaths thus far.
