(MENAFN) Recent reports sourced from The Wall Street Journal reveal that the Biden administration has communicated to Congress its intention to provide Israel with a substantial military aid package worth billions of dollars. According to insiders familiar with the matter, this proposed allocation includes a diverse array of military equipment ranging from tank ammunition to tactical vehicles and mortars.

This announcement comes in the wake of prior statements from the White House regarding its stance on Israel's security assistance.

With regional complexities and security challenges prevailing, the provision of advanced weaponry signifies the Biden administration's steadfast support for Israel's sovereignty and security within the region.
