March 26, 2024 (EIRNS)—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may have thrown a fit, after the US abstained on the March 25 UN Security Council resolution demanding a “lasting” cease fire in the war between Israel and Gaza, but the indications were yesterday that he doesn’t have to worry about Biden cutting off the flow of US weapons to Israel. Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant is in Washington, where he had meetings with National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Secretary of State Antony Blinken yesterday, and with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin today. According to CNN, Gallant was expected to ask for more US weaponry and equipment to support Israel’s war in Gaza, including more precision-guided munitions and F-35 and F-15 fighter jets.

Gallant will be told that the various cases of weapons sales are being worked on, a senior administration official told CNN. “There is scrutiny, but no policy decision to deny” the provision of additional weapons to Israel, the official told CNN.
